Our Four Hyperlocal Blogs
by Matt McGee on Aug 11, 2008 in General
I’m sure some of the content that I’ll be producing will involve sharing the successes and failures of those four hyperlocal blogs my wife and I are writing. I showed screenshots of each one real quickly in the intro video I posted last night, but for the sake of introducing them to you so you know the background, here are some more details.
We live in Tri-Cities, Washington — only you won’t find Tri-Cities, Washington, on a map. The three cities are Richland, Pasco, and Kennewick. West Richland is the fourth biggest city, is attached to Richland, but isn’t technically part of the Tri-Cities (else it would be the Quad-Cities). There are other suburbs, but we decided four was enough and created these blogs:
Missy asked a couple domain-related questions in the comments of the Welcome post, and I’ll be talking about domain selection stuff soon when I finish writing what will be a series of posts detailing our first 4-5 months of local blogging.
I won’t only be writing about those four blogs; there’ll be lots of general local blogging content here, too. But if you want to have a quick look at those blogs, it will help you understand where I’m coming from with my own experiences as a hyperlocal blogger.
