Davy Jones Locker Room 2.0!
Hello, my name is Sky, and I’m one of the writers at Davy Jones’ Locker Room; one of the youngest blogs at SBNation.
On January 20th, we received word from our parent company, Vox Media, that we would no longer be “Managed or Monetized” by them after February 28th. This was later expanded into an extension into March, where we will be given our name, site domain, archive, and brand (though the site logo is changing for obvious reasons). You’ve likely seen other GFM campaigns similar to this one from other sites like Broad Street Hockey or Defending Big D, and it’s for the same reason; we want to be able to hit the independent ground running while we transition to the fully independent “2.0” version of Davy Jones Locker Room.
We need your help to do that.
Our goal here is to raise about $6500 so that we can continue to pay our contributors and editors, as well as our chosen hosting service’s fees. Our budget before our current situation was about $1000 a month to pay our seven writers and two editors, all of whom have been passionate about bringing you the very best in-and-out-of-game coverage and analysis on the Kraken since day one. Every dollar given here will go directly towards ensuring the site remains up and running, and our writers can still bring you the best possible coverage of the Seattle Kraken.
DJLR is young, but in its short time alive became one of the fastest-growing blogs on the entire SBNation network, and is in the top 10 of search engine responses for “Seattle Kraken”, all within two short years. We owe it to our close-knit community of fans who’ve enjoyed our content and the environment we’ve fostered to continue it the best we can.
Thank you for reading and spreading the word, and thank you for giving if you can; any amount helps and if you aren’t in a position to donate, sharing the link to the campaign is just as appreciated!
And as always: Keep Calm, and Post Zoidberg When We Win.
