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.
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?
