New L.A. blog (and 20 old ones)

| 2 Comments, the city guide website being jointly produced by Gannett, Dean Singleton's MediaNews Group and Stephens Media Group, has a new blog up: LAComfidential. Most of the recent posts are about Sundance.

Meanwhile, L.A. Blogs links to a list of free wi-fi spots, and does Indian restaurants in Artesia.

And because I don't post enough on local blogs, here's what a sampling of 20 are writing about today (or close enough):

Nancy Rommelmann: Still leaving L.A.
