Welcome to the Rutland, North Dakota blog site.
The Rutland ND blog began as part of the Northwest Area Foundation Horizons Program in January 2008. The Horizons program was a community leadership program aimed at reducing poverty in small rural and reservation communities. The primary purposes of the community blogs was to help the communities track their progress in the program and help them communicate with their residents.
In 2011, the Foundation ceased support of the community blogs and each community was given the option to move their blog to another host site. Rutland chose to move to a WordPress platform and the purpose of the current blog has been slightly modified while preserving the content of the original Rutland blog — which had 6162 visits during its existence.
Any Rutland resident can contribute to the blog either through being an authorized blogger or sending news ideas and tidbits to firstname.lastname@example.org
