I guess CentreRight.com's first challenge will be to get a 'personality', something with the Spectator's Coffee House blog did with surprising ease. Like The Corner, it seems as if it won't be taking comments so it won't need lots of moderation. Group blogs are always challenging to get right, but I wish Sam all the best with this initiative. I'm sure I'll be linking to its posts regularly in my Daley Dozen.

New CentreRight.com Blog Launches Today
Sam Coates of ConservativeHome fame is today launching a new blog within the ConHome family called CentreRight.com. Its model is the National Review Corner Blog, so it will be a blog written by a group of about twenty people on the centre right including Alan Mendoza, Stephan Shakespeare, Liam Fox, David Lidington, Jill Kirby, Conor Burns and Nile Gardiner. Interestingly, the previously a-politicial Dr Crippen, whose NHS Blog Doctor blog sprang back to life last week, has come out of the closet as a Tory and will also be a contributor.
