Neighborhood Blogging

I wrote a little story about the Shaw neighborhood of Washington over the weekend - a suddenly Web-famous section of the District because of the bloggers there who take pride in where they live.

Last week, a Brooklyn company called Outside.in named Shaw as one of the "bloggiest" neighborhoods in the country, citing some 90 entries per week about the activity there. By comparison, the Logan Circle neighborhood gets about 25 mentions per week in the blogosphere.

It's an interesting concept, this hyper-local blogging phenomenon. My colleague, Sara Goo, penned a blog entry back in January about different DC-centric blogs. Some of them - just by name alone - sound like fascinating reads. Among the more interesting: Diary of a Mad DC Cabbie, Angry Pregnant Lawyer and Siren Song, which describes itself as "An incredible waste of time wherein Jacinda and Jerry visit every Starbucks in Washington, DC."

Shaw doesn't have more bloggers than other city neighborhoods. It does have a number of blogs that that are specfic to that neighborhood, but Dupont Circle is the most written about area by far. dcblogs.com has the largest and most inclusive listing of District blogs.
