The Other Germantown is a blogging project that I launched close to two years ago after a solo show of the same name, and now I'm ready to kick it up to the next level. I'm looking for a few brave souls who are either experienced bloggers and looking to reach a new audience, or newbies who are interested in trying their hand out at blogging and writing social commentary and human interest stories about Germantown.

Get at me!
