How to Make Reston Now Work For You

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.

There are a few ways to this site work even better for you. Reston Now is a great place to publicize an event, talk to your neighbors, get the news delivered right to your inbox.

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. Go to the Reston Now homepage and click the envelope symbol or Newsletter on the blue bar to sign up (we won’t SPAM you with anything else).

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]. You can comment in the comments section of a story, engaging in a lively discussion of the news of the day with your neighbors. You can answer one of our poll questions. You can send us an anonymous news tip. Coming very soon: Reston Now Forums, where you can talk about any topic.

4. Want To Share Your Photos of Reston? — We would love to see them, and maybe we will use them on the site. Visit our Reston Now Flickr Page to upload your pictures, or post them to our Facebook page or send to [email protected].

5. Mark Our Calendar — Reston Now has a free events calendar, and we will gladly publish your fundraiser, performance or any other event happening around town. Just click on our events page to submit your event.
