One of my favourite rural blogs is Professor Lisa Pruitt's Legal Ruralism - A Little Legal Realism about the Rural. (http://legalruralism.blogspot.com/)
She is also into a subject close to my heart (which you will know if you have read my book A Place in My Country), and that is rural gentrification and the impact on farms, farming and rural communities made by incomers.
Lisa, who is a Professor of Law at the University of California, Davis dropped me a note about a recent posting of her's about this and you can find it at http://legalruralism.blogspot.com/2008/07/rurality-then-and-now-here-and-there.html
Those buses tell their own - surprising - story.
She is currently attending a a rural sociology conference, which she writes "is fueling more opportunity to blog about the topic", so keep your eye on her blog if this subject interests you.
