Today, Tumblr’s official Election blog pivots into a new phase of the 2012 election cycle, and with that maneuver comes other changes. Many, many appreciative thanks to our convention bloggers — Aminatou Sow, Bobby Finger, Jason Oberholtzer, Jayel Aheram, Meg Lanker-Simons, and Tag Savage. Stellar work all, and we’ll see you in four years.
Though it began with the conventions, the Election blog will now expand to cover all (principally national) races and related political news and commentary. To aid in this effort, the blog will feature a rotating cast of weekly guest editors selected from the Tumblr community. These guest editors will come in pairs, and we’ll do our best to recruit a broad diversity of perspectives, opinions, biases, backgrounds, styles, notoriety, and experience.
To that end, please welcome our inaugural guest editor duo: Inothernews and The Hipster Libertarian. The Election blog’s ask box and submission box remain open for business, so feel free to hit them (and us) with questions and suggestions anytime. Let’s make with the electioneering.
