Local Blogging

The Guardian have an article looking at which city enjoys the most local blogging:

How to define a local blog is also tricky. Is it one about a region and so something that could be written anywhere? Or is it a collection of writings by somebody local even if the content isn’t particularly specific to an area? We plumped for items written in regions about the same regions wherever possible, although we acknowledge the approach won’t be perfect.

I guess it’s easier for those of us who are writing local blogs to recognise a fellow local blogger, when we stumble across them, even if it might not always be obvious to the casual reader.  For myself I’ve always considered anyone who wants to be defined as being a Lewisham blogger to be one, whatever their subject matter or how frequently they write about our fair borough.

Anyway it’s nice to take a peek at what other local bloggers are doing and where their energies are focused.
