Local blog, The Hedgehog Report, just celebrated its fifth anniversary at the end of December. In blog years that makes The Hedgehog Report ancient. I have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Hedgehog himself, Dave Wissing and can tell you that he’s a nice guy and doesn't look anything like a hedgehog.
Well okay maybe just a little bit like one.
I think his blog gets something like 1,000 visits a day. Though he primarily focuses on political polls, he will frequently post on local issues as well.
Five years of blogging make The Hedgehog Report the granddaddy of local blogging.
