New Series: Blogging (in) LA

Hello there readers,

Those of you who stop by regularly know what is about. We blog here because we love LA and we want to share what we love about it with you all. We don’t pretend to be comprehensive or “objective” and we aren’t paid. We’re just Angelinos with various passions and proclivities (even obsessions). We like to write about our favorite LA moments or upcoming events that we think sound interesting or news about vegan restaurants or bicycling or film noir or street art or elections or or or … fill in the blank.

But we know we’re not the only game in town. We were the first group blog about LA–we’ve been blogging in LA since 2003–and we’ve seen a lot of other sites and bloggers come and go.  Most of us who write for read a lot of other sites devoted to Los Angeles. At one of our last meet-ups we decided it would be a good idea to share some of our favorite LA-based sites with you. So for the next two weeks, we’ll be posting every day about our LA compadres–from the ridiculous to the sublime. As with so much of what we cover here, we are simply writing about what we think is noteworthy (both for its virtues and faults); we aren’t attempting to be encyclopedic about our approach. That said, after the first couple of weeks of daily posts, we plan to continue the series indefinitely with weekly posts about other LA sites. We aren’t promising anything, but If you have a favorite you’d like us to cover, of course, you should write us and let us know.

  1. Hmm…I posted some links, but the comment didn’t show up. Some sort of spam prevention? I’ll name them instead: LA Taco, Street Gourmet LA, Biking In LA, and Forum Blue and Gold.

  2. Weird Evan, I’m not sure why that happened. I never got notification of your comment and there’s nothing in a possible spam queue. Must be a ghost in the machine thing. Thanks for the suggestions.

  3. WordPress gets funny with too many links in a comment I have found over on one of my blogs done on that platform. One link is usually fine more than that and it goes straight to oblivion…or a master spam file that I have to manually reinstate, but more often delete as its trying to sell pron, viagra and tractors in Russia.
