I totally failed to mention that I am now writing for blogdowntown. This is in addition to writing for blogging.la. I am going to continue posting content relevant to LA on blogging.la and I am going to be posting Downtown history related tidbits to blogdowntown. I will also be linking to my posts on those to blogs from here and if the content is relevant to multiple outlets I will post unique versions of the content on each site.
My first post on blogdowntown was of a spoon that I bought on ebay. I posed a few questions to the readers and they were answered quickly. I am planning on doing a series where I scan historical public domain photos of Downtown from my collection of old books and post them along with a modern version of the photo's subject. I am now going to try find a way to take a photo down 3rd street from Bunker Hill, if that is even possible.
Eric Richardson, Ed Fuentes and I are hosting a picnic at Elysian Park on Sunday, May 27th at 2pm. It will be a potluck style event, so bring food and drink along with your blogging shoes and possibly a camera. For more information, keep an eye on this url: http://blogdowntown.com/picnic
LA Downtown News also mentioned it on their website.
