blogdowntown 2.0: More Conversation

We debated holding this news until tomorrow's picnic, but I decided I wanted to go ahead and get it out there tonight.

Today marks a big change for blogdowntown. After having written this site solo for a bit over two years I’ve decided it’s time to grow. Beginning today, Dave Bullock and Ed Fuentes will be joining the site and adding their takes to our conversation about life in Downtown Los Angeles.

On January 13th, 2005, I launched blogdowntown. At the time the site was simply a place where I shared my observations on living Downtown. Over a thousand posts later that’s still what I try to do.

The biggest and most important thing that’s changed in those two years is the way in which this site has become a conversation. I strongly believe that those of you who read and comment here are the strength of blogdowntown.

I barely have to introduce Dave and Ed to those of you familiar with the Downtown blogs. Via eecue and view from a loft (respectively) the two have become fixtures of Downtown blog coverage. Together we hope to create something that’s even greater than the sum of its parts.

Downtown is changing every day, and I've been thrilled at the part this site has been able to play in its development. I'm glad to welcome Dave and Ed to the (newly-formed) team, and I think great things are in store for the site.
