Hometown Pasadena Launches a Blog

Colleen Dunn Bates
tells us that the site Hometown Pasadena is the companion to the book of the same title.


From their site:

Built on a WordPress platform, this new site is technically a blog but is really so much more. It contains our own blog, where you’ll find posts by members of the Hometown Pasadena team about whatever local stuff we’re into at the moment. It also has several departments: Eat & Drink, Events, Creative Types (posts about and/or by the countless creative people in the SG Valley), The Best (of anything from scones to songs for driving in Pasadena at night) and What Pasadena’s Reading, the weekly bestseller list from Vroman’s. And we’re not just about Pasadena; our hometown territory runs from Eagle Rock and Highland Park up to La Canada, over to Sierra Madre, and down to San Gabriel and Monterey Park.

For the record, we were able to follow along without the book. There’s not like a decoder in there or anything. No spoilers. You should all buy everyone’s book but don’t think the site will ruin the ending for you. We’re just saying…
