Hi Steven,

I recently found your blog while looking up info on Jagmeet Singh (it happened somehow). I thought the blog name was interesting so I dug around a bit. First, let me say it is great to see a monarchist who leans more towards supporting the NDP. They are rarer than I would like.

Now to the main reason I am writing you. I run the pro-monarchy blog 'The Maple Monarchists' (http://maplemonarchists.weebly.com/) and am trying to make it a resource for those interested in learning more about Canada's monarchy and defending it. For a while I've been looking for someone with a more left-wing perspective who might be interesting in contributing to my blog on a very irregular basis. If you wanted to just cross-post your monarchy-related articles with a link back to your blog that would be fine too.

Let me know if you might be interested in this idea.
