I am a research associate with the Infoscape Lab
(http://www.infoscapelab.ca). We have been  studying Canadian
political blogs for the past two years as part of a few different
projects. We had coded posts for tone, issue, and source of
discussion. We'd be happy to help you off-list with any questions
about project design or methods.

We have published some of our findings here:
Election bloggers: Methods for determining political influence by Greg
Elmer, Peter Malachy Ryan, Zach Devereaux, Ganaele Langlois, Joanna
Redden, and Fenwick McKelvey
First Monday, volume 12, number 4 (April 2007),
URL: http://firstmonday.org/issues/issue12_4/elmer/index.html

Our website also contains weekly research reports with our blog
research findings:
Canadian Federal Politics 2008
Our most recent research determines the most popular links in the blogosphere

Liberal Leadership Race
Our project coded blog posts for opinion toward leader and also
compared blog posts to the news media.

Hope this information is helpful and I look forward to talking to you soon.
