Hi there, folks. We’ve got a favour to ask.
It’s been a hell of a lot of fun getting Between the Lines up and running over the last few weeks. The politics itself has been a barren landscape of brimstone, death and misery, but boy oh boy has it been enjoyable to write about. We hope that you have enjoyed reading it as much we have writing it.
It feels as though Between the Lines has found its natural rhythm, so the time has come to start pushing the boundaries of what we can achieve. As such, please may we draw your attention to our newly-created “Support BTL” page. It reads as follows:
We at Between the Lines believe that we can become a leading voice in measured, fact-based debate. It is our desire to provide a public service by providing a new approach to political discussion – to champion compassion, critical thinking, open-mindedness and positivity, rather than to just stoke the flames of the tyre-fire that is our current political system.
However, we are unable to do it alone – we need your help!
With seemingly everyone these days wanting to angrily smash their fists into their keyboards to rant and rave about which MP has let them down or which vote was rigged by the Russians, it is extremely hard to hear a calm, measured opinion above the noise. We need your help to make our voice louder and for us to be heard.
If you are enjoying what you are reading, then please do spread the word. You can do this by following us on Facebook or Twitter, as the more followers we have, the higher-up the platforms will post our content… which means more people will see us!
If you feel like sharing a blog on Facebook, Twitter or any other social media platforms, please do! If this might be a bit too much, then please consider telling one friend or family member that you think might be interested in us – every little helps.
Additionally, as we are creating this vision from the ground up, we are currently some distance from earning any advertising revenue as our traffic is simply too low. Our dream is to be able to run the site full time, to expand our reach and even expand our team.
Without funding, however, this remains just that: a dream.
As such, we humbly ask that you consider a monthly donation on our newly-created Patreon page:
Patreon is a service that funds start-up creative companies to pursue their goals, achieved through the generosity of patrons who believe in their vision. If you believe in our vision at Between the Lines, then anything you could give, big or small, would be massively, massively appreciated.
There are a number of exclusive benefits and rewards for donations, too, so please do check it out!
Thank you so much for all of your support. The feedback we are receiving is overwhelmingly positive and we cannot begin to tell you how excited we are to see where we can go with this.
Whatever happens, Between the Lines is committed to cutting through the noise and telling you what you need to know.
No bull, no bias, no bother.
