Red County Appears To Be Going Away

Posted by Former Blogger Chris Emami on August 3, 2012

The rumor that I have just been made aware of is that today i the last day that Red County (Orange County) will be up online. One of the reasons that we started this blog was because we believe that they lost sight over there as to what it meant to be a local blog. As many of you know I got my first real start in blogging at Red County and it is actually really sad to see it go away.

I am actually sort of sad to see it go because it used to be a really good blog back in the days when Matt Cunningham, Chip Hanlon, etc… were running the show over there. Once they started censoring posts that writers were trying to put up and also leaving a 3 day delay between when posts were submitted and posted I realized that things were just not the same.

As we approach 100,000 hits here at OC Political we (Erik Brown, Chris Nguyen, and myself) want to thank the readership and hopefully welcome in some new readership from those that used to read Red County.

Thank You To Our Readers For A Great February

Posted by Former Blogger Chris Emami on March 1, 2012

I want to quickly take a moment this morning to thank our readers for what has been a great February. We started this blog with the hopes that it might make it past the first week, and here just over a month later we are still standing. This blog would not be possible without the great blogpen we have and the commentary that we receive from our readers.

So a heartfelt thank you from the founders of this blog including myself, Chris Nguyen, and Erik Brown. Hopefully we can make March that much better. If you have not already done so I would encourage those of you who enjoy reading this blog to do the following:
