The goal of realcrozetva is one of community contribution. I want realcrozetva to be a destination for discussion, for information, for sharing of thoughts and ideas specific to Crozet.
One of the best things to come from the arrival of the Crozet Gazette is that people are talking about it and talking about current issues affecting Crozet because of the Gazette. That’s what I want for realcrozetva.com.
If this blog becomes a destination for people to learn about Crozet goings-on, and I segue from author/editor to contributor because others have taken on this mantle, fantastic. This blog would be a success.
A more informed populace is (in this ideal world) a better one.
As always, if you want to write, or have a story idea, please email me.

The above “vision” is similar in many ways to that of another local site, cvillenews, but I couldn’t find one of Waldo’s many requests for others to take on his role.

Jim, I appreciate your personal touch in keeping the Crozet community informed on a variety of topics and events. I usually check in to the blog a few times a week. I try to add what I can.
Who is authoring the “Crozet.US” blog? It looks like just a canned blog program and no authorship is claimed. The link to realcrozetva as the “the other blog for crozet” is a bit rude.
Hang in there and keep writing!
Thank you so much for the kind words. Regarding Crozet.us – I don’t know. I’ve checked the domain registrar, and it appears to be a local resident, but that is as much as I know.
I’ll keep on keepin’ on …
I’m pretty sure that crozet.us is just blogspam — a site set up automatically along with thousands of others by scraping information off of the ‘net.
“Who is authoring the â€œCrozet.USâ€ blog?”
I blog does not need to be authorised, unless the scribner is claiming to write for an group or person, and thus it does not matter who is running the blog. Of course it would be preferable if the author was someone from Crozet, but, if they are not, there is really nothing that can be done. In closing, anyone could start a Crozet blog, and by using a proxy appear to be a resident, so I would advise people to just ignore this other blog if it bothers you…
