Now that the blogsphere is attracting the kind of attention it should, different niche segments have now emerged to engage the attention of readers. Like the city blogs.An interesting article to read on the subject is by Kendra Locke of the Associated Press. Locke looked behind the bloggers running those "metro" blogs and found that most of them are not full time bloggers. They work for a day job but collaborate to compile events, reflections, recommendations, news and complaints about their city. The blogs are "emerging to put a number of big cities in intimate, street-level relief".The 'metro' bloggers are garnering the attention because they are helping the time strapped denizen 'to get up to speed as to what's hip and what's going on …' in the city.

Its kind of funny but one can relate to it. Its nearly there, but something is amiss. The situation is like the feeling of a lonely lover whose love is getting married and moving on, most probably to another city out of his sight. Not funny but I know you will understand.
Delhi makes you like it or hate it. If you say like, something is growing on you, like a song, you would probably get blank looks.

The numbers in which Delhiites turned up in the first phase to support of the movement, in an equal show of apathy are nearly absent in the second phase. Blame the climate, the nature of people who populate the city irrespective of ethnicity, language for food preference, the amiss people are near as reliable are they are actually unreliab…
