Yes LA, There Is a Streetsblog

For a while now I’ve talked about using this blog as a placeholder until we were ready to launch a version of Streetsblog for Los Angeles. Well, the time for that launch approaches and my first two posts for Streetsblog are now online. Given my obsession with electoral politics, it should be no surprise that these posts are looking at the Republican and Democractic candidates for president.

Once the launch of LA Streetsblog occurs, all of the old posts from here will be available on the Streetsblog server. While the posts will still be here at StreetHeat, this site will see far fewer updates than it does now…StreetHeat will basically be my personal blog and cover such exciting topics as who I want to be president, bad personal experiences on the bus and maybe pictures of my cat riding a bicycle.

LA Streetsblog will have the same kinds of posts that you see here only with less of my opinions and better spelling. I promise not to misspell Wendy Greuel’s name again.
Until then, Street Heat will remain open for business. As always, please keep me in the loop/send me story ideas. So far, I haven’t turned a story idea down. And of course, keep reading. Nothing makes a writer’s day than an active comments section!

Open Letter to Streetsbloggers

|
Friends, Just a couple of weeks ago, I believed that I would be writing my last post at L.A. Streetsblog next Friday.  As it turns out, having listened to all of you and talked to OpenPlans, it now seems likely that L.A. Streetsblog will continue publishing instead of migrating our efforts to a new website.  […]

Announcing the "SoCal Voices" Series

Streetheat will be operating at about half power for the next week and a half. Between the holidays, my travel back east, and working on an exciting change for next year; I’m going to be very busy…too busy for three posts of unique content a day. However, for those of you that read this blog […]

And Now, a Word to Our Sponsors

|
Since I’ve been writing for Los Angeles Streetsblog, the website has undergone a couple of re-designs.  While I think that currently the site is more navigable than ever before; there was one thing I didn’t like about the new site.  Based on the emails I received, a lot of you agreed. LA Streetsblog v.2 featured […]
