About

The Blue Alaskan is an ad-free blog.

The Blue Alaskan is not a past or present politician. Any assertions to the contrary are either lies or conjecture and have no basis in fact or reality.

The Blue Alaskan focuses on local political issues — rarely state issues — and matters of race, health, and equality – but is not limited to those areas.

The Blue Alaskan has been cited by the Washington Post, printed and reprinted by Anchorage Press, shared by Alaska Democrats, and referred to as a “Liberal Blog” by the Anchorage Daily News. The Blue Alaskan has also earned the distinguished award of being labeled a “Radical Left Blog” by right-wing blog Must Read Alaska.

After covering the “Alaskan Patriot” Telegram group on June 9, 2021, which shared dangerous Qanon conspiracy theories, the group appeared to have been de-platformed by the social media service on July 16, 2021.

The Blue Alaskan wrote about and first covered Alaska’s ICU bed capacity inflation after the HHS handover. The Blue Alaskan covered the “other side” of the Anchorage School District’s COVID-19 return to school from an employee’s perspective.

The Blue Alaskan ranked in the top two spots in Anchorage Press’s 25 Most Read Stories of 2020 and was the first to write about the Providence Mobile Morgue obtained in November 2020 which ranked 14 and which was the top story for November 2020.

The story: “What’s going on in Anchorage emergency departments?” ranked 18 in the same end-of-year category.

The Blue Alaskan also detailed Alaska healthcare capacity concerns on October 6, 2020.

The Blue Alaskan ranked 5th in Anchorage Press’s Longest Read Stories category of 2020 for “Dr. Deena’s mad Dash to Reopen Schools,” in a story related to COVID-19 and returning to the classroom.

The Blue Alaskan has a large social media “personality” which some find endearing while others do not. The Blue Alaskan uses social media to share news, political information, etc. from a wide array of sources.
