For eight years, Colorado Pols has set the standard in this state as the most widely read and discussed blog devoted to coverage of Colorado politics. Almost 19,000 blog posts and nearly 500,000 comments later, this site has become an invaluable property for news and opinion about our state’s politics, and the collective wisdom of our authors and community members has become a trusted institution all by itself.
In January of 2013, we’re making major upgrades. We’ve been working for months on a complete redesign of Colorado Pols, and migration to a new software platform. For users, this will mean an enhanced experience, and far better organization of content. You’ll retain your same usernames and passwords once the conversion is complete. Front-page editors will still promote posts to the home page. Over time, we hope to roll out exciting new features, but in the meantime we’ve worked hard to preserve the community you’ve spent years inhabiting.
Best of all, this is a work in progress, and puts us in a position to be better responsive to requests from readers for future improvements. Use this space to freely discuss the types of features you’d like to see in an ideal Colorado political blog, and we’ll see what we can do.
