Apparently quite a few blogs already cover the Los Feliz beat. Let my slap-to-forehead moment save you some trouble. I now present:
Los Feliz Blogs (Active)
Los Feliz Ledger (Since 2005): Brainchild of Allison C. Ferraro this is the online edition of our monthly community newspaper and probably the most comprehensive source of information about Los Feliz’s businesses, people, school sports, and general happenings. There are a number of contributing writers and articles range accordingly from quality local journalism to self-promotional pieces by business owners. They’ve even got some crackerjack reporters who haven’t hit double digits reporting on school news. Averages about 11 posts a week.
Los Feliz Today (Since 2009): Created and maintained by Alex Golshan and Lou Arakelian, “Los Feliz Today” covers a wide variety of topics from local politics to restaurant openings. Articles tend to brief and to the point. Averages about two posts a month.
Los Feliz BID (Since 2010): The online home of our local business association (Business Improvement District). Their primary goal is to promote local businesses, but their twice monthly updates often feature arts events in the area.
The Hillhurt Hustler (Since May 2012): With a focus on living cheaply in Los Feliz this will quickly become a favorite among those giving up their day jobs to chase the dream.
Los Feliz Blogs (Dead)
Los Feliz Weekly (May 2011 — ??):
The latest addition to what is quickly becoming a crowded Los Feliz blogosphere. The site design is gorgeous, with categories for Art, Events, Music, and Things to Do. It’s early days yet, so the blog has yet to fully exert its personality — nor is it clear what the posting schedule will be like. The site appears to be entirely down.
Chris Laeb’s Los Feliz Blog (Published 5/2009 — 5/2009): The second and last post on this blog ends “Next time – real estate!” Bloggers aren’t well-known for their years-long investigative reports — but we can always hold out hope.
The Skunks of Los Feliz (Published 7/2003 — 4/2006): Because, according to this author “anyone who lives in Los Feliz is aware of the strange concentration of the nocturnal odoriferous striped ones in the neighborhood.” Myself, I mostly see coyotes.
Not Quite Los Feliz
Griffith Park Wayist (Since 2009): A blog written anonymously by “park users, enthusiasts, environmentalists, and public employees” who as they see it are speaking truth to power.
Griffith Park Blog (Since 2007): Ranted by cartoonist Donna Barstow this opinionated and sometimes funny blog touches on all things Griffith Park with a strong animal rights perspective.
