The Ventura Craigslist website offers free online classified ads to the eponymous county location. This particular location website is listed under the California heading, alongside 28 other cities and counties in the state as of 2015.
The Ventura County Craigslist website, as a free online classified ad service, features the same nine headings as other locations: community, personals, discussion forums, housing, "For Sale," services, jobs, gigs and resumes. The community heading contains activities and events of musical, artistic, political and other aspects. People attempt to make romantic, sexual or platonic connections via the personals section, while topics are explored in the discussion section. The housing, "For Sale," and services advertise goods, dwellings and skilled assistance. The final three categories highlight positions of employment and creative services, as well as posting the resumes of people looking for work.
Ventura County, one of 58 counties in California, is located northwest of the greater Los Angeles metropolitan region in the southern portion of the state. It is a coastal county with approximately 42 miles of shoreline. Although it was not one of the 27 original counties of the state, Ventura County, with the city of Ventura as the county seat, was formed by general law in 1873 as a division of the Santa Barbara County area.
