Every Thursday Washingtonians and bloggers around the country look forward to the Home section in The Washington Post. In particular, we've come to greatly appreciate Terri Sapienza's coverage of the design blog scene. As far as I know she was a pioneer with her acknowledgment of bloggers through Blog Watch - Picks to Click this Week.
However, this afternoon The Washington Business Journal reported "The Washington Post is bolstering and renaming its Thursday extra section, which will cause the Home section of the paper to disappear." The article by Tierney Plumb goes on to say, "The Home section will be included in the new product and tailored to each county, according to a Washington Post spokeswoman, as opposed to the section’s current function of covering a variety of areas for the entire D.C. area."
Exactly what this new coverage will be is yet to be seen. I have no idea if there is any impact on the Home section writers who have provided coverage to the D.C. design scene for so long and so well. I would encourage bloggers and readers to write to The Washington Post to express your opinions and share your hopes for The Post's future home & garden coverage.
