West of 14th Street

The folks at Outside.in automatically track the locations of various things that various bloggers are posting about. One of the interesting things about this is that it demonstrates how I'm not only the only person covering the Warrendale neighborhood, I'm the only one covering anything west of 14th Street.

Really.

There are twenty two different on-line sources that are covered by Outside.in. They range from mainstream media outlets to ordinary bloggers.

Even the Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press and Michigan Chronicle are barely covering most of this territory. They, of course, are supposed to be "professional journalists". Ones who, I might add, keep wondering why their readership keeps going down.

This works out to me having an exclusive on almost half of the city of Detroit. I have to admit that a portion of me likes having that much room with essentially no competition.

However, there's another part of me that feels sorry for all of the other bloggers in town. I love the Magic Stick and Lager House as much as anyone else. However, one can only write so many articles are those places before it starts to get boring.
