Introducing Two New Blogs: The Blue Marble and The Riff

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Though still a bit beta, please check out our two new blogs. The Blue Marble is our blog on the Environment and Health (and related policy) while The Riff is our culture blog: basically the space where we can rant about books, music, movies, TV, celebrities, eating, gaming, and whatever other leisure activities come to mind. MoJo staff will contribute to both new blogs, but we’re also fortunate to have MoJo contributing writer and science geek extraordinaire Julia Whitty anchor Blue Marble. And over at The Riff, DJ Party Ben (aka Ben Gill), king of the mashups, will provide us with occasional mashups, music reviews, and rants on whatever he damn well pleases.

So we expect some tasty mashups from Ben in a day or so*. Meanwhile, if you want to learn why we chose the name Blue Marble, read this.

*Update: Party Ben has just posted his first 2007 Mother Jones Mashup: Faithless vs. George W. Bush’s SOTU. Go take a listen at The Riff.

THIS IS BIG FOR US.

And we won't beat around the bush: Our fundraising drive to finish our current budget on June 30 and start our new fiscal year on July 1 is lagging behind where we need it to be.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please consider joining your fellow readers with a donation to help make it all possible. Whether you can pitch in $5 or $500, it all matters.

If you're new to Mother Jones or aren't yet sold on supporting our nonprofit reporting, please take a moment to read Monika Bauerlein's post about our priorities after these chaotic several years, and why this relatively quiet moment is also an urgent one for our democracy and Mother Jones’ bottom line—and if you find it compelling, please join us.
