Slow summer blogging ahead…

Believe it or not, I’m heading off on holiday in a few days. I will continue to blog, but it will be very occasional. I’ll be back towards the end of the month to tune in for the new political season in Northern Ireland. In September we’ll have news of an exciting new online project, and we hope to have some serious sponsorship for Slugger by then too. In the meantime, if you’ve enjoyed Slugger and want to help keep us going – please, please put a few bob in the donation box on the left hand side. Or even better, drop me a cheque! Have a good summer all!

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
