Blogging About Blogging XXXIII
There's a Web movement making some noise in Philadelphia. In response to a local columnist's recent efforts to get locals to market the city for themselves, a group of small business owners have pulled together a site called PhillyBlog.

The response, which is being orchestrated by a relatively new transplant to the city, lauds and lambastes many of the city's characteristics, positioning it as a valid alternative to cities such as Boston. The multi-author nature of the project makes for some disjointed reading, but recent posts have been quite active, and the comment count is high.

An interesting parallel to some of the regional blog directories, local blog rings, and other similar projects.
