"Neighborhood blogs: the mom-and-pop news business"

Seeing how Pullman is now just a "drop location" to the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, the time may be ripe for something advocated by commenters here and reported on by Peggy Sturdivant at Crosscut:
News blogs about Seattle neighborhoods are sprouting like weeds. Their territory can be as small as the blocks immediately surrounding a park or as vast as West Seattle, created to rally against outside forces or in response to a certain event. They can vary from providing news straight-up to being heavily dosed with humor. Still other news blogs are product tests. Some have advertisements, others don't. Neighborhood blogs can even be "killed" and then reborn with advertising and multiuser capability.
The time is coming my friends....
