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
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.
