Wee Ginger Crowdfunder 2019

£5,570 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 194 people in 1 month
It's that time of year again, time for the annual crowdfunder. Pro-independence websites can't rely on big corporate donations like anti-independence campaigners. We rely entirely on individual donors putting their hands in their pockets to keep us going.

This blog is a one-man operation, yet despite that it's one of the most productive blogs in Scotland. Almost every day this blog publishes a 1000 plus word essay on a topical theme in Scottish politics, plus a shareable graphic, and a weekly podcast. It works out at over 300,000 words a year, that's several novels' worth. In anyone's language that's good value for money. Yet everything published on this blog is free to everyone, there are no paywalls, no adverts which benefit me, no subscriptions. In addition I do talks for Yes groups, SNP groups, and others all over Scotland for which I never ask for nor receive a speaker's fee. This is the busking model of journalism, and once a year I set out the bucket in the hope of donations.

As always, I am asking for £10,000 in order to provide myself with a basic wage. I do make a small amount of money from other sources, from writing in The National, the sales of Gaelic maps and books, but it's not enough to live on. Writing this blog is a full time job. As Brexit comes to a climax, it's all the more important to have pro-independence voices in Scotland. The coming months are likely to be crucial in the history of Scotland.

Your support is of course immensely appreciated. All donations large and small are welcome, yet if you are unable to donate that too is fine. You will continue to enjoy unfettered access to all the contents of this blog.

Many thanks in advance.
