The Long Beach Media Scene is actually kind of packed. We have the Press Telegram of course, and let's see; LBReport, LBPost, Everything Long Beach, The Gazette, a long list of citizen reporting in the form of a ton of blogs, and I'm sure another half a dozen that I'm leaving off. So with the passing of The District Weekly, which love it or leave it creates a large whole in the LB Media Scene, I wanted to try to get a gauge of what you all see as missing... Do you think there's too much overlap, not enough old school "journalism", what is not being talked about that needs to be focused on and covered more????
If you can, take a second and answer our quick survey on the home page. We'd really like to hear see your comments and who knows, maybe we'll even share with the others listed above. :)
A quick note before you click away. I don't know if we've ever really put this out there, but this is what 562CityLife tries to be about.
At 562CityLife, we are a community based and focused site. We aim to keep it cultural, a little bit political, and ALWAYS in the know. We want to know what's going on, and we want to help share that information with all of you! This site is meant to organically grow and strengthen ties within and to the LB community as a whole. It's an open forum, we welcome and encourage YOUR voice here. 562CityLife is for ALL parts of Long Beach. If you're looking to share news of an event you have coming up, we're here. If you want to yell and scream about something important to you, we're here. If you want to connect with new people or organizations right here in Long Beach, we're here. This is a social network for the people of Long Beach by the people of Long Beach. We work hard to generate in-house content for you, but please always remember this is for you AND by you.
OK, well that's my soap box for the day. Now go click on that survey and then go out and enjoy our BAD ASS LB Weather!
