A changes were made Jan. 3. River East blog: Beyond Bread.
There are 50 active DC neighborhood blogs and their numbers continue to grow. The latest, revised list of neighborhood blogs by neighborhood is below.
In 2006, a random reference point, there were less than 10 neighborhood blogs in the District. In the years since, many other neighborhood blogs were started and disappeared. But the overall base of neighborhood blogs continues to expand and the broad trend is evident from this list.
Some of the longest running blogs include Frozen Tropics, InShaw, Bloomingdale, Petworth News, Logan Circle News, Penn Quarter Living, and a few others I’ve probably missed.
What’s a neighborhood blog? Any blog with a mission to cover a specific geographic area. That area can range from a few streets to multiple neighborhoods.
There are many other blogs that write about District-wide developments and urban issues, and I’m now revising that list, as well as a list of Metro area, Virginia and Maryland, neighborhood blogs.
UPDATE: Since publishing this list on Thursday, I’ve received some information on a few more blogs and have included them on this list. The help is appreciated. Please send feedback and I’ll adjust the list.
This list will be updated regularly and included on the directory page. I’ll revise it as new blogs are formed. If a blog hasn’t been updated in three months, it may be removed from the list. — KOB
