Papa’s Got a Brand New Blog

Are two blogs better than one? I guess I’m about to find out. I’ve been accepted to the writing staff of Beyond Robson, a candid street level newsblog site that must be widening its readership, as they’ve hired a bunch of us newbie writers over the past week. (We’re actually on a probationary term, I’ve got 3 posts to prove myself. No pressure. Glurk.) The site aims to report on events and concerns that are beyond the scope of the major media outlets, which, given the steaming piles of fertilizer that pass for dailies in this town, should leave an ample supply of material to choose from. I’ve actually been reading it regularly for some time now, it impressed me early on with its advocacy of indie theatre, it features fair and informed reviews by writers who sound like they actually wanted to be there. So you know what I’m going to be using my new soapbox for. Mwah-ha-ha-ha…all part of the plan…

Seriously, if you’ve got a play to promote let me know, I’d love to consider it for BR. Send me an email at Simon(at)beyondrobson(dot)com with the details. The demographic of the site is the same one that we want to coerce into seeing more theatre, the 20-35 year range. Which, I just realized, puts me a year too old for my own demographic. Which is okay I guess, I already go to the theatre.

Beyond Robson is part of a national company that has similar blogs in Toronto and Montreal by the way, if you want to check out the respective street scenes there.
