Grandma! I’m going to be on TV!

Even if you’re not my grandma, you’re invited to watch 10News tonight at 5:45 p.m. I’m going to be interviewed as part of that station’s special today on the mortgage mess, called “Home Sweet Home: Surviving the Mortgage Meltdown.”

They’ve teamed up with the California Association of Mortgage Brokers and the state Department of Real Estate, and have had Spanish and English phone banks set up since 5 this morning to take your questions about your loans. (The phone banks, at 619.237.6309, are open until 7:30 tonight if you have questions.) I’ll try to find a clip to post here once the segment airs.

If you’re visiting Survival in San Diego for the first time and heard about the blog on TV, welcome! Scroll down to read my most recent post.

When we launched this blog in August 2006, we knew that housing concerns and job issues — the building blocks of surviving in San Diego — were grinding away a little bit of our readers’ bliss. We thought the blog would be a great chance to share little bits of our longer housing and economics stories. And what a couple of years we’ve had covering such hot topics.

E.B. White said, “Don’t write about Man; write about a man.”

I’ve given White’s words this twist to describe what we’re doing here: “Don’t write about a city; write about how the people of that city live and work there. And give them news updates and interesting stories to help them make better decisions.”

It’s not as concise as White’s adage. But that’s a bit more about us. Please, always feel free to send me an e-mail with your thoughts, reactions to what you see here or elsewhere, and ideas and tips for stories.
