Valleywag is talking about how blogging has sprouted up for metropolitan areas.
AOL's blog network, Weblogs, Inc., jumps into the local-blogging pool with Blogging Ohio. In true Weblogs, Inc. style, the blog sports a massive right column of intra-network links, as well as a mighty footer full of article links. Somewhere between these, the graphic ads, and the text ads, is info you can't find on the two major city-specific networks, Metroblogging and Gothamist.
In addition to the Gothamist (New York City), there's also blogs for Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, London, Los Angeles, Miami, Paris, Philadelphia, Shanghai, Seattle, Toronto, Washington DC, and (my favorite) San Francisco.
