Help me to raise £10,000 to allow the Wee Ginger Dug blog to continue for another year, and so that the dug and me can continue our campaigning work - and to keep visiting and supporting grass roots organisations across the length and breadth of Scotland once lockdown is over.
The Wee Ginger Dug is one of Scotland's best known pro-independence blogs, but content creation doesn't come out of thin air. Bloggers have to eat. They have to read newspapers and watch the TV news, so you don't have to. They have to think of smart arsed things to say. They have to reach down into their souls and bare their feelings. At least, this one does. All of that can only be done if you have the security of knowing that you'll be able to pay your bills and keep food on the table.
Help me to keep the blog going for another year. I'm hoping to raise £10,000 which will enable me to support myself for the next twelve months, an amount which works out at less than the minimum wage. This money will allow me to continue to blog, to go and give talks in support of local groups all over Scotland, and when lockdown is over to once again appear at pro-independence events and to support other pro-independence initiatives.
I hope you agree with me that the Wee Ginger Dug blog delivers good value for the support you give. Almost every day there's a 1000 word essay and a shareable graphic, and additionally there's a weekly podcast. This blog tries to keep focussed on making the arguments for independence, a task which will be all the more crucial over the next year as Scotland becomes a country where majority support in opinion polls for independence becomes the new normal.
I'm very grateful to have so many loyal and regular readers, this blog would not be possible without you. Please help me to keep it going and keep the Dug's tour of Scotland going too once that becomes possible again. All support however small is gratefully received. My heartfelt thanks.
