If you’ve ever Googled aimlessly in search of a local blog, be it for Vancouver or Nairobi, there is now a one-stop-shop available over at Placeblogger.

A placeblog is an act of sustained attention to a particular place over time.
It can be done by one person, a defined group of people, or in a way that’s open to community contribution.
It’s not a newspaper, though it may contain random acts of journalism.
It’s about the lived experience of a place [placeblogger]

The recently launched, locally produced [Bryght] Placeblogger allows you to add and browse blogs from all over the world, which are all sorted by country, province/state and city. If you’d like to find a blog about kitties in Calgary, you’ll probably have some luck searching by content as well.

Placeblogs spring from a fiercely non-generic America that’s not about big-box retailers or the type of polarizing discussion about politics, culture, and the economy that’s the product of journalism that happens at the 30,000 foot level. Often, they are a delightful and vivid look at cities, towns, and neighborhoods from an insider’s point of view [placeblogger]

Hop on over to view the growing BC and Vancouver blog directory and read a little more about the global, yet local site. is added but I’m not everything in my general feed is “Vancouver” enough. Also, I have my Flickr photos in my feed so um, not sure what some people searching for blogs about Vancouver Life will think of my NKOTB.
