What is Hyperlocal Blogging?

Wikipedia defines the buzzword “hyperlocal” as follows:

Content that is characterized by two major elements.  Firstly, it refers to entities and events that are located within a well defined, community scale area. Secondly, it is intended primarily for consumption by residents of that area. Some people think hyperlocal content has to be produced by residents of this area, but this point is discussed (for example a gov stat can be hyperlocal but not locally produced).

Hyperlocal blogging is the familiar blogging process, except that all of its published content is focused around a specific geographic area – typically centered around a particular town, or in some cases – a particular neighborhood. 

Currently, hyperlocal bloggers’ efforts are in aggregate, disjointed and unorganized.  However, WikiCity’s new blogroll attempts to change all this.  Now bloggers from anywhere within the United States – from communities of all sizes – can shamelessly plug themselves, while at the same time, organize themselves into geographic or “hyperlocal” hubs.
