When I created iScot in November 2014 (was it really seven years ago!) it was as a direct result of satisfying a burning desire to ‘do something’ to help in the process of promoting the cause for independence. With a background in manufacturing, and knowing little about print media other than those journals that I chose to read, it was self-evident that their editorial line was unashamedly anti-independence.
A multitude of free online blogging sites suggests that nowadays a number of folks choose not to pay for printed content anymore, and whilst that’s mainly true – there’s still a large demographic of folks who consume their news from print media. If you think print media is all but dead ask yourself why the red top VOW had such a major impact on the 2014 referendum result. Did you know that the age demographic that buys print news today are more or less the same demographic that predominately voted NO in 2014?
Independence is in our view Scotland’s salvation and we are doing all we can to promote the positive arguments for self determination.
With 77 monthly issues under our belt, it continues to be a relentless emotional roller coaster of a journey – sleepless nights, cash flow pressures, major health scares,- we’re no different from any other small business – yet, despite our detractors, and every other conceivable barrier to progress including #Brexit and #Covid19 related pressures – we’re still standing… and passionatly promoting the cause of Scottish Independence.
We still rely on financial support from our supporters, particularly at this time of year. A donation to iScot enables the only truly independent grass-roots Scottish publication to keep on promoting the cause of independence to a world-wide audience in both print and digital platforms. We are not a profit focused ‘cost centre’ for a multi national foreign corporation. We just happen to believe that independence is normal.
Feel free to leave your comments on our donation boards, and thank you for your ongoing support – we can’t do this without you.
