Hello Jamie,

I'm a fellow blogger and a Vancouverite who works just off the downtown eastside in Gastown. I've been looking for new partners with in the city to exchange links with, and although i see that you don't have a link section, I wanted to inquire about this with you as your blog is exactly the type of progressive content that I want to link to. I've added you to my links. Would you be willing to reciprocate? My details are as follows:
