I have blogged at Gauche since 2003 – sometimes more enthusiastically than others. The blog was shortlisted for a Guardian prize early on, but it has often been so fitful since that I'm slightly surprised it still exists.

I also ran a blog during the alternative vote referendum campaign in 2010-11, AV is Not PR, which was an interesting experiment that showed me just how difficult it is for do-it-yourself online journalists to have any kind of impact.
