(Now) 43 Local Blog Directories
Can you help with this post? I’ve put together this list of (currently)
33 43 blog directories where a hyperlocal blogger might want to be listed and linked. Some require payment; some are free. Important: I am certainly not vouching for all of these; some I wouldn’t want our local blogs to come anywhere near! But it’s still a starting place.
Please spread this post around by email, Twitter, social media, however … and invite anyone who’s into local blogging to use the comments to add local blog directories that I’m missing.
(I’m certain there must be tons more of these….)
Washington Post has a directory of DC-area blogs
CityPages.com has a directory of Minnesota blogs
Minnesota.com has one, too
Newsbobber.com also has a Minnesota blog directory
Austin (TX) Stories
DFW Blogs (Dallas/Ft. Worth) – seems out-of-date or dead
San Diego Bloggers – ditto
Search Maryland blog directory
Paducah (KY) iBlog Directory
Lowcountry Bloggers lists a lot of Charleston, SC, area blogs
LocalMouth’s British Blog Map – pretty cool!
Best Blogs Asia
Citizen Rain – aggregator of Seattle neighborhood blogs
Hartford Blogs, from the Hartford Public Library
BayNewsNetwork, from UC Berkeley’s Knight Digital Media Center
Oakland Local blog directory
Local Blog Directories
Outside.in – a blog directory mashed up with local media content
Blogs by City – looks like it hasn’t been updated since 2005 (sheesh)
feedmap.net – spammers have ahold of this one
WikiCity – technically not a local blog directory, but a wiki-based collection of city guides that invites local bloggers to add themselves to a city blogroll
InOtherNews.us – directory that lists only local news/journalism blogs/sites across the U.S.
General Blog Directories
Best of the Web has a Regional category in its directory.
Blogged.com also has regional listings.
EatonWeb Local News blogs – looks like a strong page
Bloggapedia offers a regional blog directory.
Blogarama has a “community blog” directory, but a couple thousand blogs are all piled into this one category. How about some regional categories there, blogarama? (And you, too, Blog Explosion.)
LSBlogs – scroll down and look for “By Location” in the left nav column
Globe of Blogs
Regator: Local Interest blogs
Now it’s your turn to add more in the comments, and I’ll update this post accordingly.
