Title The Spanish political blogosphere in General Election 2011. A comparative study among candidates’, journalists’ and citizens’ blogs Summary This study constitutes and analysis of the Spanish political blogosphere during the electoral campaign of the General Election 20th November 2011, in order to identify the most debated issues in three different types of blogs: six blogs belonging to candidates of the main Spanish political forces, four blogs of well-known journalists and four blogs of anonymous citizens. We propose a content analysis based on 57 thematic categories in order to establish the agendas’ composition of the fourteen bloggers and draw a comparison between them. The results will show the different agendas deployed by the three main actors of political communication processes –political parties, the news media and the citizenship- and the distinctive features associated with the three different types of authors. Keywords Political blogs; electoral campaign 2011; content analysis, digital communication; public sphere.
