The B-Town (Burien) Blog is a truly local, multiple award-winning, independent, family-run ‘hyperlocal’ news/events website covering Burien since 2007, and provided free to Readers thanks to much-appreciated advertising support from our great local business community.
We appreciate all our Readers and Advertisers, and are seeking to expand our coverage of Burien and south King County.
Of course, like many small businesses, we have been hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has affected our advertising revenue. So we’re asking for your support.
We are the leading local news/events website, ranked by 71% of respondents as the #1 local news source for Burien in a 2018 city survey. You may have seen announcements from other news organizations in our area stating closure of print operations and layoffs of employees. The good news is, we have always been 100% digital, keeping our operating costs low, while continually striving to provide the local news that you will not find elsewhere.
If you value our local coverage, please consider supporting us at a level that makes sense for you. And remember – you can cancel at anytime. We have partnered with PressPatron to make it easy for you to contribute on a monthly basis, or a simple one time donation (just click the red “Become a supporter” button below). Whatever amount or frequency you choose (even a one-time, one-buck donation helps!), it’s all good, and it will help us keep our pixels updating with the most current and relevant hyperlocal coverage of Burien news, crime, COVID-19, politics, arts, business, events and more.
The B-Town Blog is managed by Scott and Theresa Schaefer, who’ve lived here since 1995, have raised two children, been involved in the community supporting local numerous non-profits, arts, schools and community events and fundraisers to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars of in-kind sponsorships over our 14+ years in business. Scott also now serves on the Board of Directors for the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce.
“In an ever shrinking local news landscape, we take seriously our commitment to serve our community,” Scott said to himself while writing this. “And we will keep doing this, no matter what happens!”

#COVID19 is impacting businesses across our state, including local newspapers. But the work of journalists bringing us timely, accurate information is more important than ever.
If you can, please consider becoming a subscriber to your hometown paper or supporting local radio.
