A high level of blogginess in Newton and Watertown

Posted by Martin Finucane April 26, 2007 02:50 PM


There's a high level of blogginess in Newton and Watertown.

At least that’s what people think over at Outside.in, a website that aggregates blog postings and news at the city and neighborhood level.

In their just-released list of ‘‘America’s Top 10 Bloggiest Neighborhoods,’’ Outside.in ranked Newton fourth and Watertown seventh. They were the only two communities in Massachusetts to make the list.

Clinton Hill, a neighborhood in Brooklyn, N.Y., was ranked No. 1, followed by the District of Columbia’s Shaw section and downtown Los Angeles.

The site, which says it tracks local bloggers in ‘‘over 3,000 neighborhoods,’’ based its rankings on a number of criteria, including the total numbers of posts, total number of local bloggers, and total number of comments on postings made by blog readers.
