Yn anffodus mae’r arbrawf Guardian Local yn gynnwys Guardian Cardiff yn dod i ben cyn hir.
The Local project has always been experimental in both concept and implementation. We’ve learned a lot from the beatbloggers, under the expert guidance of Sarah Hartley. We have also learned from the local communities who got involved with telling their stories. And using this we have continually refined our approach over the past year.
As an experiment in covering local communities in a new way, it has been successful and enlightening. Unfortunately, while the blogs have found engaged local readerships and had good editorial impact, the project is not sustainable in its present form.
So over the next month or so, we’re going to be winding down the Cardiff, Leeds and Edinburgh blogs and retiring the local project. Don’t worry – nothing’s going to vanish or stop suddenly, and we’re going to integrate communities and topics into our wider site coverage wherever possible.
