It appears the blogs have started to fall quiet in Loudoun County, on the one hand probably exhausted by the election, on the other hand scooped up by Loudounextra.com's "stable" of bloggers under the "Living in Loco" nameplate, or by the Loudoun Times Mirror blogging troop...
Blogs that have stalled:
-Landsdowne, and out in the Open - "Earlier this week, I signed an independent contractor agreement with Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive to provide between 4 and 8 stories (a.k.a., “blogs”) per month to the “Living in LoCo” section of Loudoun Extra"...more content for the Post's awakening giant in LoCo, soon Fairfax also...
-Another Loud Blog - quiet now, no more posts
-Loudoun Leadership - maybe once a month, now
-Loudoun Talk - no talk since Sept.
-Loudoun School Dais - every month or so - maybe Tom'll check in more frequently with his re-election

-Eastern Loudoun News - flash in the pan, no more posts
-Pastoral - dribbling, last posts in Oct.
