Advent of Bloggers: Day 20
Twenty is for the hyper-local here on Advent of Bloggers.
Space For Gosforth is an activist group for a suburb of Newcastle that uses blogging to argue for improvements to the area. It’s a conversation they have with the council in public and they aim to “show the thing” where they can. They mix positive and critical suggestions and feedback. It’s not a blog that has any relevance outside of a few square miles, but that was always the promise of the internet; a bit for all of us.

- The Ouseburn Trust are a charity heavily involved with another of the suburbs and they mix history of the area in with appeals and events.
- Whatever the local relevant blog is for your area. Not got one? You could start it.
