RestonNow Welcome to our new Reston Now readers — and thank you to all of the readers who have forwarded us news tips, story ideas and photos since we launched in October 2013.

Here are five things to know to make Reston Now easier and better for you.

1. The Newsletter Comes Out in the Afternoon — Want the news of the day to come directly to you? Sign up for the daily newsletter. It will come to our inbox every weekday at about 4 p.m. This is a great way to catch up on what has happened that day.

2. Want News As It Happens? — Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get links to stories all day long. You can also leave comments and messages and speak with editor Karen Goff directly this way.

3. Something On Your Mind? Let Us Know! — We have lots of ways for you to speak your mind. You can send a letter to the editor to [email protected].
