I have been considering what to do with this blog, and I have decided to carry it forward to continue our conversation about some of the topics I hold dear, including education issues, the Fairfax County Public School system, and current events in Fairfax County. I'm still working out the details of what the new version of this blog will be like, and you can look forward to seeing many changes and updates over the coming weeks.
Speaking of blogging, I am excited to be attending the Sorensen Institute's first Summit on Blogging and Democracy in the Commonwealth on August 27 in Charlottesville, organized by Waldo Jaquith and Chad Dotson, aka John Behan. (Incidentally, as far as I know, John Behan and I are Virginia's only elected bloggers.) I recognize several names in the attendance list, including Lowell Feld from Raising Kaine, and Maura Kearny from Democracy for Virginia, and I look forward to finally meeting in person other Virginia bloggers that so far I have only known online.
See you in Charlottesville! Cheers,
