Davis County Watch has a good post wondering why more Utah bloggers don't spend more time blogging on Utah issues.
It's a wonder I've had, too.
Yes, I post on national issues. However, I try to keep that to a minimum, and only focus on a few issues that I can't bring home to Utah.
Other "local" blogs, which shall remain unnamed (I'm choosing to be nice this evening), focus almost entirely on the national. The problem is, they drown out those of us trying to act locally, trying to affect change in our own backyard.
Don't try to change Utahns' perceptions of DC, change their perceptions of what's going on at home first. Most people are unhappy about what their local government is doing. Remind them of that.
They'll start seeing that Democrats are not a four letter word.
