Housecleaning: DamienTalks, and SBCA Seeks Steering Committee Members

Now that Streetsblog California has been publishing for a couple of months, we have a couple of upgrades to the website to announce.

First, #DamienTalks is going on a short hiatus until the last week of the month. We wanted to see how popular the podcast was and were doing it on the cheap to see if it was something worth doing. Now that it's been established and hundreds of people are downloading it every episode, we're going to go on a short hiatus to upgrade both the hardware and software we've been using to create the podcast. I know when we come back you'll notice the difference immediately and it will be worth the wait.

Second, we're recruiting for volunteers to join our Streetsblog California Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is a sort of mini-Board of Directors helping and guiding the staff. In addition, the Steering Committee selects two of its members to join the California Streets Initiative (the nonprofit that publishes SBCAL, SBLA, Santa Monica Next and LongBeachize) Board of Directors. If you're interested or just want to hear more, please contact me at damien@streetsblog.org

Third, we made an offer to a writer for our Central Valley position. Look for a formal announcement after contract signing next week!

Last, as much as we enjoy your clicks, social media love, and comments; we'll need cash to grow our coverage area. If you haven't already, please consider making a donation today.
