AmericanTowns.com has invited town residents across the country to recommend their favorite â€œcommunity blogs,â€ or to start their own blog about the goings-on in their town. AmericanTowns staff will review the suggestions, and add the best to its network of â€œcommunity webspacesâ€ which AmericanTowns operates for each town in America.
Criteria for a blogâ€™s inclusion in AmericanTowns.com will be: relevance to the local community; up-to-date postings; and pro-community orientation. Suggestions can be submitted by going to AmericanTowns.com, inserting a zip code or town name, and, from the resulting town homepage, clicking on any â€œsuggestionâ€ button.
AmericanTowns already provides each town in the U.S. with its own â€œcommunity webspace,â€ each rich with â€œeverything localâ€ — local events, local groups, news and announcements, maps, videos, on-line resources and local services â€“ while enabling community residents to add to or edit this content.
