Happy Second Birthday, L.A. Streetsblog

Yesterday, Los Angeles Streetsblog quietly celebrated its second birthday with a slice of Hungarian cheesecake and a story about Paris Hilton.  Yeah, we really know how to party.

The good news is that we've proven that Streetsblog in Los Angeles can work and has worked.  I've seen the original stories written here help drive mainstream media coverage in some ways, be used by local advocates on different issues, and we've helped highlight some of the great writing occurring everyday on other blogs around the city and county.

As we kicked off our fund raising campaign last month, we also announced that we have some pretty ambitious expansion ideas.  While a tax-deductible donation is a great way to celebrate a birthday, you can also help us celebrate by writing down your ideas for how you would like to see Streetsblog expand here in Los Angeles.  More best practice stories from around the county?  More in-depth analysis stories on how money is spent?  Stop writing about bicycles entirely?  Or, do you just really miss Cartoon Tuesday? 

There's no such thing as a bad suggestion, and I'd love to hear any idea you may have below.
