Vale Mail

As part of his search for local community blogs dp has come across a gem in Vale Mail, a relatively new blog covering the minutiae of Castle Vale. While not strictly on the CiB radar it’s an interesting model to look at. dp says:

It has apparently been online for all of 3 months, but has posted tens, possibly hundreds, of items and garnered 10,000 visitors/page hits in that time. Stories combine local interest (car burnings, who’s playing at the resident’s club, sports fixtures) and an assortment of other items.

I wonder how many official websites serving the community get that sort of traction in three months?
