I am working on doing some social media work for a new app that will be released later this summer called WeJayDJ (follow @wejaydj for updates). One of the articles that I came across while searching for content on playlists is a playlist on the Guardian’s Music Blog. The Guardian is looking for folks to create a playlist around a theme of your choosing – “Make a playlist: Your top 10 songs about…“.
Which got me thinking – local bloggers should submit local playlists!
Songs can help to define a place. A few years ago, I was driving across the country with a friend and picked up some books about Route 66 along the way. The town of Tucumcari, New Mexico was made famous by Dororthy Shay’s song “Two Gun Harry from Tucumcari.” In fact there is an entire album of songs about Tucumcari, New Mexico – Route 66 news has a CD review of that album here.
I would love to see the local playlists that bloggers come up with. I have already asked the IheartPGH readers to help me come up with some Pittsburgh playlists. One of the popular posts on IheartPGH last year is the post I wrote about Blue Slide Park, which is the name of Mac Miller’s recent album, and the name of what most kids would say is the best playground in the city.
Here are a few ideas for putting together a local playlist….
I would love to see the local playlists that bloggers come up with. I have already asked the IheartPGH readers to help me come up with some a playlist of the top 10 songs about Pittsburgh. I have used the tool List.ly to create collaborative lists. I have started with one of my favorite Pittsburgh songs – The Burg by Larry McGee.
If you create a local playlist – please share a link to your playlist here in the comments and use the hashtag #localplaylist
Some recent blog posts about Tucumcari, New Mexico:

If you’ve browsed this blog or follow BlogLocal on Tumblr and Pinterest – you will know we have a thing for maps. BlogLocal is a website about blogs about local places and maps are often used to find local places.
If you like maps, then be sure to check out this post on the New Yorker by Casey N Cep – The Allure of the Map.
The entire article is worth a read especially if you are interested in literature and maps. But this paragraph is what struck me as most appropriate for local bloggers:
Writers love maps: collecting them, creating them, and describing them. Literary cartography includes not only the literal maps that authors commission or make themselves but also the geographies they describe. The visual display of quantitative information in the digital age has made charts and maps more popular than ever, though every graphic, like every story, has a point of view.

We would like to make this a weekly feature where local bloggers share a photo of a place, a person, or any setting that captures local. Pick a photo that tells a story about that place, give us a quick sentence or two about what this photo and why this photo tells a story about a local place.
One of the websites that I use often when I am looking for an answer to “what is the best tool to do x?” is Quora. Quora is a question and answer website that has a lot of great content and lots of tech folks have spent time answering questions on the site.
I was browsing Quora this morning looking for some information on BlogLovin and how other bloggers have used the BlogLovin platform. If you are a blogger who uses BlogLovin – I would love to learn more about your experiences. Continue reading →
One of the most helpful resources I have as a Pittsburgh blogger is the Pittsburgh Bloggers Facebook group. This group was started in 2012 and now has 253 members. The Pittsburgh Bloggers Facebook Group is a great place to ask questions about Pittsburgh and questions about blogging.
As I have been working to write more posts for the BlogLocal Blog, I have been wanting to connect with more local bloggers outside of Pittsburgh. So I’ve been thinking and I did some searching – why not have a Facebook Group for local bloggers across all cities. Meet the new Local Bloggers Facebook group. Continue reading →
