Welcome to the Fairfax Blog
The hottest trend in the rapidly changing world of journalism is the rise of blogs. Today we start our own version of a blog for Fairfax County that we hope will provide you with another way of getting information about your community from the reporters and editors of The Washington Post.
Some blogs are online diaries or journals that contain the musings of the author on any number of topics. Ours will be more like a community bulletin board that tells you what is going on in the county. Some of our posts will be breaking news such as a major traffic incident. Other items will be about future events, such as an upcoming concert. We will tell you about neighborhood disputes, Board of Supervisors and School Board actions, local crime and development. We want to be as fresh and topical as possible so you come to rely on us every day to find out something you may not have known about life in this big county of ours.
We won't be as personal or opinionated as some blogs. Our job is not to comment on the news. Instead, we want to deliver the news to you for your reaction. We encourage you to post a message about the items you read so we can start a series of community dialogues. Or, if you want to offer a story tip, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you find us an authoritative web voice for what's going on in Fairfax County.
