During a quick narcissistic Google search, I came across Localfeeds: Atlanta, which tracks and publishes any blogs located in Atlanta that publish an RSS feed and connect with GeoURL. So far, it looks like they’ve created “Localfeeds” for about twenty-five or thirty cities across the US, in Canada, and the UK. I have to admit it was a little strange to see material from my blog in this other space, but it’s interesting to see yet another mechanism for connecting blogs associated with a specific geographic space (such as AtlantaBlogs). I know there’s an intriguing connection between the somewhat abstract space of the blog and this tendency to identify with a specific place in one’s blog, but that connection is escaping me right now, just beyond my reach. I’ll have to put that on the list of things to think about when I have time (with student papers coming in tomorrow, no promises).
Meanwhile, when I was checking out LocalFeeds, I also had the good luck of coming across a blog authored by a member of Magnapop, a band I really like that has local ties.
