FiveThirtyEight Joining

Nate Silver:

Some exciting news this morning: We have reached agreement in principle to incorporate FiveThirtyEight's content into

In the near future, the blog will "re-launch" under a domain. It will retain its own identity (akin to other Times blogs like DealBook), but will be organized under the News:Politics section. Once this occurs, content will no longer be posted at on an ongoing basis, and the blog will re-direct to the new URL. In addition, I will be contributing content to the print edition of the New York Times, and to the Sunday Magazine. The partnership agreement, which is structured as a license, has a term of three years.

Sounds like a great deal for the 538 team and readership, but now who'll I point to when I need an example of a Blogger blog that doesn't suck?
