Houstonians might want to check out Kevin Whited’s latest efforts in blogdom at BlogHouston. Kevin, recently of ChronicallyBiased.com fame, also has the Publiustx blog. I’m a big fan of Kevin’s blogging efforts, and his latest is definitely staking a claim in one of blogdom’s fastest-growing territories. These blogs, often consisting of more than one blogger, focus on the state or local level and not only function as a form of media watch, but also position themselves as an alternative to the traditional local print media with their coverage extending to the culture and the people. BlogHouston’s Anne Lineham tackled the flu shot shortage reporting at the Houston Chronicle.
