When the Curbed networks had to switch their economic model for Eater and Racked writers to go from salary to freelancer, they unfortunately lost their editors. For Eater LA's Lesley Balla, she went over to run an e-mail newsletter for Tasting Table LA. But once you're a blogger, can you ever stop? Enter Chow Balla (get it? Balla is her last name): "After two years of gossiping over at Eater LA, I can’t seem to shake the blogginess out of me. Therefore, this is my new home for all sorts of news, tid bits, observations, snap shots and general frivolity about restaurants, dining, drinking. Los Angeles primarily, but you never know where my thoughts will end up." Former Racked LA edtior, Tasha Nita Adams, blogs vigorously at her site, Blackburn & Sweetzer.
