Beware of Gridskipper, says blogger

Former Gridskipper contributor Katherine Spiers, who has a new food blog, alleges that the dates on Gridskipper posts for travelers to Los Angeles are bogus.

Lots of people think I (and all the other LA contributors) still write for Gridskipper. Understandable, since our pieces have recent dates on them.

Gird yourself, for I am about to tell a secret.

Those articles were all written at least a year ago. Gridskipper’s current ownership - who cut off communication with us - just slaps a new date on our old pieces and moves them to the top of the page. So if it seems like Gskip is wildly behind the times…well, yes. You are correct.

Here are some of those posts, dated just last month.
