A Blog? Why Do You Need a Blog?

Hello there Westside Independent readers and welcome to the blog! We wanted to explain briefly why we’re starting a blog to go along with the rest of the features on our site.

The blog is a place where we can post announcements, tell you about upcoming events, link to news articles and other information about the neighborhood, and update you about stories we’ve already posted. The format of the rest of the site didn’t allow us to post these kinds of short items easily.

You can comment on blog articles just like on or other news articles, and we encourage you to do so. Also, if you’ve got some news you want to share with the community, let us know! Anyway, it will hopefully make more sense as we post more. So…stay tuned!

Thanks,

– Avi and Ben
