Now Racked is about to follow its brethren out to the West Coast with the launch today of Racked LA, which will be edited by Tasha Nita Adams, already a neighborhood blogger and a past print freelancer. Ben Leventhal, editorial director of the Curbed Network, said he could not break out individual blog traffic, but said Racked’s New York site has grown 53 percent since the beginning of 2008, and 850 percent since its launch a year ago.
