Welcome to the Blog section of the ALL-NEW shelbycountyreporter.com! By now I’m sure you’ve noticed all the changes we’ve made to the website and we at the Reporter are hoping we’ve served you well in providing the local news that matters most to you.

We’re all very excited about the changes mainly because we feel as if this website makes it much easier for you to interact with other members of the community in ways that were not possible before.

We’ve specifically added this Blog forum as a way for you, our readers, to speak your mind on any topic you wish. Instead of just commenting on stories we write, you are now able to discuss what you feel is most important to Shelby County. Others may also comment on your blog just as you may comment on their’s.

You’re allowed to post your blog as few or as many times as you’d like. We will not edit these blogs in any way, however, we will not allow any blogs that contain profanity, or are potentially libelous. We also reserve the right to make the final decision on the posting of any blog.

I hope you enjoy all the new changes.

All of us here at the Reporter are very interested in what you have to say. Enjoy the new website and thank you for your continued support of the Shelby County Reporter!
