Slugger ads nearly hit the top…

Here’s a rough guide as to how the Slugger ads worked on Message Space over the last month. It doesn’t mean we have a bigger audience than Iain Dale, but in terms of ad impressions, after Guido Fawkes, we have been blazing something of a trail. So far we’ve been fairly careful to keep the ads as relevant as possible to the content of the site, though there is an opportunity for us to bring in more generic ads from larger companies to help subsidise the base cost of running Slugger, and enable us to put the ‘begging bowl’ (as some have rather unkindly put it) to one side.

A good election season for Slugger then, if not yet a golden egg. Nevertheless, we are hopeful we can develop this side of the site and as our audience continues to grow, I’m hopeful it will begin to become more self sustaining. If you are a potential advertiser with a message to get across to Slugger readers (and other blogs), you can contact MessageSpace here.

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.
