Are we tired of ‘hyperlocal’ as a buzzword yet? Hopefully not, as some of these niche-focused news sites are actually making money while bigger papers hemorrhage staff.

On the moneymaking side are Tracy Record‘s West Seattle Blog and Debra Gallant and Liz George‘s Baristanet, covering Bloomfield, NJ.
