After the initial messages of welcome from around the blogosphere, now comes the inevitable backlash - along with some more supportive commentary.
John Hays at SleazeReport.com gives us his own Dean Scream: "Oh no!!!!! - not more deep, meaningful discussions on the new blog in town. Aaaarrrgggghhhh!!!!"
OregonLive's Sarah Gilbert also says howdy: "BlueOregon is the hottest thing in political/news blogs. All the biggest names (and, even, some that don't suck) are making an appearance." Thanks, glad we don't suck.
And, last but not least, Oregonian-in-exile Chuck Currie gives us a shout-out: "This should be one of the first places you visit for Oregon news."
UPDATE: And, as b!X points out, we shouldn't leave out the dead-tree media. Willamette Week scooped our own press announcement. I'm not sure what a Blogistani warlord is, though. [One correction: While b!X is a huge inspiration for us, his involvement so far is limited to being our very first visitor - and our most prolific commenter.]
