“Neighborhood Weblogs”?

Hi, Washington Post. It’s us, we’re the blogs in your town. I know, it’s been a while since we talked, most of the time you only come to us when you’re slumming, needing a little piece of interesting gossip, or when you’re interested in capitalizing on our buzz-factor, but today you slighted one of us.

That’s right, at just before 1pm today, DCist picked up on a little tiny bill that was chucked into the mix right before Congress adjourned: a bill that would rename 16th St. to Ronald Reagan Boulevard. Your article, written 7 hours later, doesn’t mention the source for your information saying only “neighborhood web logs”. This is a problem. We give credit where credit is due, we link to the source of our information. It’s part of the blogger’s creed: give credit where credit is due.

You owe DCist a round of drinks. Minimum.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
