I thought that it might be useful to publish an “episode guide” of my California Fool’s Gold series of explorations.
When I explore a new community, I usually rely upon the vox populi which is why anyone may vote for what communities they’d like to become the subject of future articles by clicking here for Los Angeles neighborhoods, here for Los Angeles County communities, and here for Orange County communities.
LOS ANGELES AND ORANGE COUNTY PRIMERS
If the reader wishes, they may also read brief introductions to all of the communities in the poll which are organized by regional primers corresponding to the 22 Kingdoms of the Southland: Angeles Forest, The Antelope Valley, The Channel Islands, Downtown Los Angeles, The Eastside, The Harbor, Hollywood, The Mideast Side, Midtown, North Orange County, Northeast Los Angeles, Northwest County, The Pomona Valley, The San Fernando Valley, The San Gabriel Valley, The Santa Monica Mountains, The South Bay, South Los Angeles’s Eastside, South Los Angeles’s Westside, South Orange County, Southeast Los Angeles, The Verdugos, and The Westside.
PRIMERS FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
Although at the time of writing I’ve yet to expand California Fool’s Gold‘s reach beyond Los Angeles and Orange counties, in 2015 I began creating polls and primers for the other eight counties of Southern California, which are: IMPERIAL (To read the Imperial County primer, click here; to vote for Imperial County communities to be explored, click here), KERN (To read the Kern County primer, click here; to vote for Kern County communities to be explored, click here), RIVERSIDE (To read the Riverside County primer, click here; to vote for Riverside County communities, click here), SAN BERNARDINO (To read the San Bernardino County Primer, click here; to vote for San Bernardino County communities, click here), SAN DIEGO (To read the San Diego Primer, click here; to vote for San Diego County communities, click here; to read the San Diego neighborhood primer, click here, to vote for the neighborhoods of the city of San Diego, click here), SAN LUIS OBISPO (To read the San Luis Obispo Primer, click here; to vote for San Luis Obispo County communities, click here), SANTA BARBARA (To read the Santa Barbara County Primer, click here; to vote for Santa Barbara County communities, click here) and VENTURA (To read the Ventura County Primer, click here; to vote for Ventura County communities, click here.)
