Getting all hyper about our local sites

So called hyperlocal sites have been the focus of an interesting article about their origins this week, The fight for a right to report, and how the mainstream media has been slow to take them seriously.

For what it's worth, I'm a fan. And, I have to say, these sites in north east Wales have been a help in my work, acting as a source for ideas, stories and talking pointings. I wish there were more!

Only yesterday I was reading http://rhuthun.blogspot.com taking issue with parking charges in town and saying how locals are grumbling.

As a local history fan I'm a regular reader of Colin's http://rhyl-life.blogspot.com which focuses on the resort's history and change.

And as a hill walker I keep up to date with John's website, www.moelfamau.co.uk, as well as the musings of members of North East Wales Search and Rescue who chat via Twitter.

What all these blogs have in common is they're a place for like-minded people to talk and share - and long may they continue.

Which local bogs do you follow?
