While weblogs’ ability to connect people regardless of their geographic location has produced some fascinating stuff, I’m looking for weblogs that focus squarely on a particular area.
So far, it seems popular in that people think it’s a good idea - Glenn Reynolds encouraged blogging on local politics in February - but I haven’t seen a large wave of people actually doing it.
I’d like to think that I just haven’t looked hard enough, and that maybe it’s something difficult to find in Google and similar tools. I’ve found some weblogs already, but I’d like to add more to that list.
My criteria are fairly simple. The weblog should focus primarily on local politics, where local is something smaller, preferably much smaller, than a county, state, or province. I don’t mind pointing to subcategories of weblogs with broader perspectives, so long as what I’m pointing to is mostly local. Local weblogs can be from any country, not just the US, though that’s what I’ve listed so far. They don’t have to be in English, and they don’t have to focus on politics, either.
It’s great to publish material that can reach a wide audiences. Sometimes it’s also great to publish for a smaller audience.
Know of any locally-focused weblogs?
