Why the heck does the Buffalo Ridge need a blog?
Traditional media tend to locate in population centers. As bottomlands like rivers and oceans made water travel easiest until a bit over a century ago, cities along those waterways tended to become population centers. The railroads came later, but they avoided ridges like ours, it was much easier to move thousand ton trains up (and down) flat valleys. The highways pretty much followed the railroads, leaving the ridges and highlands with scant populations and starved for news, and especially news of local import.
That’s a news vacuum that BuffaloRidgeBlog intends to fill!
