For my birthday this year, instead of buying me a pint, please consider making a small donation to help keep our music blog archived and online community costs covered*.
It’s a big year for the site. October 2020 will mark 20 years of Drowned in Sound and I’m currently planning a few different ideas to bring the editorial side of what we did back to life. It’s likely to take the form of essays, social-led recommendations, and possibly a podcast to compliment our monthly show on Soho Radio. Would also still love to do a print edition archiving some of our best pieces, and looking into options to do that.
Anyway, you can either donate (my suggested amount is £6.66 ) or make a small regular donation with PayPal here ☞ https://bit.ly/2qrFI65.
I’ve also done a fundraiser on Facebook in case that’s easier for you. £300 will help keep the forums online for another month. If you could just share it that would also be a big help for it to surface on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/donate/454853502090198/?fundraiser_source=external_url
Why do we need your support? Online advertising has pretty much evaporated, despite our traffic remaining high (we still get over 2m page views a month on our forums, for instance) and despite managing to lower our costs, it still costs £100s a month to keep the site online to provide a free service.
Thank you in advance for your help and support.
*=due to the continued growth of the forums, we’re likely to have to move on from the $300 a month package soon https://www.discourse.org/pricing
