Our Winter 2022 appeal is now on, and after a week we have raised £338. It is some time since we made an appeal to the SFM community, mainly because we felt that we could not continue to ask you to bear the brunt of the costs of running the site.
Since our last appeal ended early in 2022, we have had a deficit of around £900 which has been met by the the moderators. We hope to raise around £1200 to help us get ready for 2023 in a stronger financial position than we have been over the last ten months.
After ten years of existence as a non-partisan website and blog (relatively unique to the soccer blogosphere), SFM is still one of the most influential and informative sources of news and analysis in Scottish Football. Our daily numbers are far below what they were in the early days of our existence, but the site still experiences massive spam comments from disaffected football fans, and regular co-ordinated DoS attacks, as well as being a recognised source of insightful opinion and fact in matters of Scottish Football.
We still strive – and will continue to strive, to give an honest commentary of the affairs of the game and to hold the powers at Hampden to account.
In those years we have cast a spotlight on the errors, inconsistencies and deliberate misinformation peddled by the MSM on matters related to our national game. We have helped to expose succulent lamb journalism – and we will continue to do so.
Of course we know that there are ever growing demands and pleas for funds from online sources. That said, we hope if you CAN help, you will.
SFM content or participation is not hidden behind any paywall, and there are no ‘Subscriber-Only’ bonuses. The truth has to be available to all of us regardless. That is our our overarching aim.
