You know and love UtahPoliticoHub as the largest opinion page in Utah politics. Since we started in January 2014 we’ve published almost 2600 total posts from over 130 authors. While most of our work is opinion pieces, we’ve also done several investigative posts on a variety of topics. This kind of citizen journalism is what blogging promised as it rose to prominence in the early aughts.
And that’s why we’re delighted to provide an option for you, our humble readers, to contribute to that work via Patreon.
What is Patreon? Simply put, it’s a tip jar to support content you like. A little bit of money helps cover the hosting bills and promote the site and our best content to a wider readership. A lot more could mean hiring an actual professional journalist to do even more investigative reporting. It all depends on how much you want to support this endeavor.
So are you feeling generous? There’s a new Patreon button at the bottom of each post you can use to send a little financial love our way, either one time or ongoing. As we get more support, we’ll start doing awesome things with your generosity and seeing what kinds of exclusives we can cook up.
