Hyperlocal sites are forums and blogs run by local people which often have strong local community networks and surprisingly wide readership in a small area – typically smaller than a local newspaper or council covers. In a time of difficult commercial conditions for local media, hyperlocal sites are an interesting alternative way to engage people in a local area.

If you’re looking to engage these kinds of sites with a campaign, consulation or news story, Openly Local can be a great way to find contacts. It lists hyperlocal sites and their Twitter accounts on a map, and makes the directory searchable by area.
