Columbus Blog City

By

Columbus Skyline

"Columbus?" is the headline of a blog post from a Pittsburgh blogger.

What does Columbus Ohio have in common with  New York, Los Angeles, London, Chicago, Rome, Madrid, Toronto, Houston, Washington, Atlanta, Paris, Seattle, San Diego, Austin Texas, Minneapolis, Denver, San Francisco, Portland Oregon, Dallas, Singapore, St. Louis, Jakarta, Brooklyn NY, Philadelphia, Mexico City, Montreal, Beijing, Moscow, Mumbai. 

"Blog Belt status" according to the story he quotes in Business Week.

Reaction by Pittsburgh blogger Mike Madison of Pittsblog:

 "Columbus?"


The lists are the usual large metro areas and wired and wireless meccas. And Columbus, Ohio, which comes in at number 30."

Business Week's Graphic of the Blog Belt  is described:

As Net connections spread, Web 2.0 services are expanding. On a recent day, these were the top 30 cities for blog postings and comments, divided into three tiers by levels of activity.

The full Business Week article - Children of the Web

The Business Week article is very long.  I have not fully digested it yet.   It was one day.  Maybe Columbus was particularly bloggy on that day. 

I am sure many in Cleveland, Cinci, Akron, Dayton, Toledo, Youngstown as well as Indianapolis, Detroit and others are saying "Columbus?"  World class blogging from Columbus? 

Columbus blogs include:

Around the Oval
Bitchin’ in the Kitchen with Rosie
Boys Wear Pants Men Wear Trousers
Buckeye Banter
Buckeye Commentary
Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus Movie Guy
Columbus Retro Metro
Dave’s Beer
Dead Body Guy

and one of the oldest local sites... ColumbusUnderground  Walker Evans left a comment on one of my posts about Columbus blogs.... Columbus has lots of food and football blogs and absen from this list are political blogs and at least a half dozen real estate blogs... including ColumbusBestBlog.com.

Maureen, I would have expected nothing less for Columbus. Lots of smart people there with the Ohio State crowd too. And of course YOUR smart blogging self!

Interesting post, Maureen. Took a look myself but need to read the article - wonder how they made the determinations of the top 30? Of course we know what gets Columbus there, don't we...as Gary said...
