Another former Washington Times writer is going the route of Mark Zuckerman and working to raise money so he can cover sports independently via a blog. Just as Zuckerman is doing with the Nats on his Nats Insider blog, former Times writer Patrick Stevens has been doing with the Terps and the ACC for over eight months, and he’s looking for some support.

As Eric Prisbell of The Washington Post‘s Terrapins Insider describes it, Stevens “plans on taking his blog show on the road with the Terrapins ” and “is asking his loyal fan base to help him continue his coverage.”

Check out the donations page on Stevens’ website for more details. He’s aiming to raise $9,000 to cover this football and basketball season. As of this posting, he’s at $1,271 with contributions coming from 30 donors.
