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 the logo featured on the left which was removed for the launch of LA Streetsblog v.3. However, the programmers and artists in New York heard our cry and got to work. Earlier today, the blank orange bar at the top of our page was blank. Now we’ve been given back most of our old logo including our palm trees, our hills and our Orange Line. We may have lost our cyclist to a couple walking their dog, but I don’t think anyone that reads LA Streetsblog would have trouble seeing our clear bias in favor of cyclists.
If you’re a fan of our logo, NY Streetsblog, SF Streetsblog and the
Livable Streets Network have gotten similar upgrades. Feel free to use
those easy-to-use tabs to check out their sites as well.
Because I know this graphical update isn’t going to receive the notice that the larger redesigns have, I wanted to take a bit of cyber-space to say thanks to everyone in New York that has worked to make this blog possible.
From the fundraisers, to the programmers, to the graphic artists to the folks at Streetfilms, Los Angeles Streetsblog wouldn’t be the same without all of your work. First, a special thanks to Aaron Naperstek and Mark Gorton for their continued support and guidance and Ben Fried, Brad Aaron and Sarah Goodyear who provide great content for the national stories we run every day. Last but not least, I think we can all agree that having such great writers at SF Streetsblog has led to much better coverage of state issues on the LA page as well.
