About Estonian World


We’ve all been working for free, full-time, for eight years. We can’t carry on like this anymore.

Dear Reader,

When we founded Estonian World, we didn’t do it for money. We did it because as young Estonian expats, working in London, we wanted more people in the world to know about how Estonians do things and what we are all about – our digital solutions, great culture, strong identity and traditions, and the beautiful country.

There were many others around the world who joined in and now, with over 50,000 followers in the social media, we’ve become the most engaging English-language online publication about Estonia, read in more than 200 countries and territories.

We publish and circulate stories from Estonia and about Estonians in a positive, encouraging manner, but we don’t neglect to write about the country’s and its peoples’ challenges and concerns.

We are a team of professional journalists whose greatest assets are integrity, honesty and sticking to the truth. Yes, we strive to be positive, but we don’t sugarcoat. Our professional ethics dictates objectivity above everything else. It is also the reason we’ve kept it ad-free.
But we can’t keep up our work without your help. We’re in a dire need of your financial support to continue creating great journalism. We’ve all been working for free, full-time, for eight years. We can’t carry on like this anymore.

Please consider supporting us in our efforts. We’d be grateful for every level of support.

Thank you very much in advance,

Silver Tambur

About our goals on Patreon:

What we are asking in our goals is vital for the existence, endurance and the very survival of Estonian World. Our web hosting and maintenance costs are what keep the magazine alive. These include the domain, the hosting, and the necessary add-ons to deal with site load and traffic, which, at times, can generate additional costs. We have been paying this out of pocket.

Our Editor-in-Chief and Deputy Editor are working, day in, day out, as full-time editors and writers. Everything we publish is scrutinised by their eagle eye to ensure you get the best quality journalism, the best quality content. In addition to this, they write many of our news stories, features and interviews. They have been working for free for eight years, and they deserve a salary for their hard work.

Our contributors have not been paid either. Most of our content that comes from outside of Estonian World only exists because of the goodwill of many people who want to write for us, who want us to have the quality content we share with you. But these people also deserve to be paid. We are hoping to raise enough money on a monthly basis to support ourselves, our contributors and the very sustainability of Estonian World. We would not be able to exist without your support.
