Four years of Metroblogging


Metroblogging [wp] is turning four years old today. Starting in LA with Blogging LA [bla] the world wide blogging network has expanded to over 50 cities dotting the world like the chicken pox dot a young child’s face. Though Vancouver’s planet in the Metroblogging universe hasn’t been around quite as long, we started just over two years ago, I am quite proud of the part we’ve played.

Some sites might claim to blog past downtown Vancouver, but with Metroblogging we’re part of a network that touches an incredibly diverse set of cities and different cultures. Being able to watch our Pakistan blogs deal with their recent political troubles [mb] was an incredibly revealing experience. We’ve been lucky in Vancouver, and Canada, not to have good blogging opportunities like that or the riots in Dublin [mbv] to challenge us. It makes me appreciate my ability to complain about the strike without having to worry about being hurt in the process.
