Readers’ Choice: Is this the best D.C. blog?

Dear Readers,

The Experiment Station is 31 days away from its 1st birthday. For all of us contributors, the past 11 months of telling stories about our creative processes as staff at an intimate museum has been a whirlwind of inspiration, laughs, surprises, and–of course–experiments. We think about you, our readers, as we do our work at the museum, brainstorming what kinds of things you might like to know and see, and what kinds of things you might like to tell us if we think to ask.

If The Experiment Station has come to mean something to you, as it has to us, we humbly invite you to vote it Best Local Blog/Blogger in Washington City Paper‘s 2012 Best of D.C. Reader’s Poll.

Whether or not you decide to vote, thanks for experimenting with us!

Amanda, Brooke, Caroline, Elizabeth, Josh, Karen, Kate, Klaus, Meg, Patti, Paul, Rolf, Sandy, Sarah, Sue, and all contributors to the Phillips blog
