Apparently, the folks over at Philly.com are trying to promote the blogging thing.
Which is all well and good, I suppose, but apparently this blog run by reporter-cum-blogger Dan Rubin is supposed to cover local bloggers and local events. However, if you take a good look at his blogroll he’s got the typical bloggers and, as of today, a grand total of 5 Philly area bloggers (and that’s if you include the Daily News blog and Eschaton).
Add to the fact that the tone of some of the current blog posts aren’t exactly about local blogging or local bloggers covering issues.
Color me underwhelmed. I’m actuallly a little pained by this, since if Mr. Rubin takes the time and effort to run a strong, interesting Philly area blog he’ll get readers.
I know he could do better coverage of local blogging. Let’s see if he’s up to the task.
