Losing the thread

Mark Lawson, in the Guardian (and, as I’m reminded by Robin at perfect.co.uk, 2 days after the Times carried a similar article) has a quick look at the way blogs are covering the General Election, and Slugger gets a name check, but no comment on our efforts so far.. probably for the best given the conclusion he reaches – “At its worst, blogworld most resembles a radio phone-in for leftwing men but without a Victoria Derbyshire or Brian Hayes to interrupt the callers who lose the thread and start to free-associate.” *ahem* Update Oh, get her! Hahaha! Updated Link

We are reader supported. 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.
