I am a freelance journalist. I am not a full-time employee with any media organisation.
This gives me the freedom to be independent and to report and analyse online – directly to you, sometimes going “live” for hours during major events.
This is essentially a reader-supported blog, which carries no commercial advertisements. If you appreciate my independent writing and blogging, you may want to consider making a small contribution. These contributions help to cover the costs of operating this website (webhosting and domain name rental), company searches, travel expenses as well as time spent on research and writing.
And as traffic has increased, I have had to ensure web-hosting servers are upgraded to meet the extra demand. The usual server is now supplement by cloud servers that serve you pages faster than before. Security concerns mean that during peak periods, extra measures are needed to minimise the likelihood of “Denial of Service” attacks that could knock down the servers. For live blogging, another package is required to provide the platform.
So any contribution, no matter how big or small, is welcome! But so that there is no external influence or pressure, please no contributions from political parties, corporations or business interests. Low-income readers, don’t worry about contributing. Just pass the word around or ‘like’ the page.
