Lively Republican blogging…

Balrog has to be one of the most welcome developments in the NI blogosphere in the last few months. It’s intelligent, particular and partisan. And an example of why blogs are there to be enjoyed!

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.

  1. They deserve praise. It’s good to see that they are prepared to put forward different viewpoints e.g. on the death penalty.

  2. Thanks for those kind words Mick 🙂

    When I first set up Balrog I didn’t think It would be as much fun as it is.

  3. Balrog is terrific. Chris and Paddy, the main bloggers, are partisan, but not brainwashed. I find their comments tough-minded, independent, honest and searching. Interesting comments from readers, too. Thanks for the recommendation (p.s. Slugger is a great read as well!)
