The Blog Patch Grows: Hollywood Site Debuts Today

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Another local community will have its ins and outs covered daily online via Patch, as Hollywood comes into the fold of networked hyperlocal neighborhood sites today.

In today's obligatory "Welcome" post, Editor Anna Bakalis explains: "For Patch, covering Hollywood means not only keeping our elected and government officials in check, but telling stories from the ground up, and through articles and columns, video and photos."

Today they've got stories on the permit flap with the Hollywood Farmers' Market and an exclusive item about the closing of Kung Pao Kitty, along with other newsy items of the day. Hollywood may have just gotten a little smaller, thanks to the sharpened eye on the local scene, but the blogosphere got a little bigger today.
