Kind of interesting: Placeblogger:

Here’s San Diego: hey, what’s that other fool calling itself “San Diego Blog?” Lame.
Here’s us: San Diego Blog: Real San Diego Daily | Placeblogger

Here’s what they say about themselves:

Placeblogs are sometimes called “hyperlocal sites” because some of them focus on news events and items that cover a particular neighborhood in great detail — and in particular, places that might be too physically small or sparsely populated to attract much traditional media coverage. Because of this, many people have associated them with the term “citizen journalism,” or journalism done by non-journalists.

    I’m sure I’m missing the point… but what are they doing besides aggregating local blog content? (albeit to the small degree of “snippets”)

    Not a slam, but I just don’t really see the purpose quite clearly.
