About Oggy Bloggy Ogwr & State of Wales

Oggy Bloggy Ogwr, State of Wales and Senedd Home were set up to help fill a gap in English-language news about Wales and Welsh politics.

I long thought that as long as people read the work, feel it's useful and keeps them up to date with what's happening in Wales then that was rewarding enough.

While this is a tip jar and there was never an expectation to make a living from this, it was with some regret I decided to end Senedd Home in March 2021, as the levels of work vastly outstripped the levels of support I received (particularly compared to similar outlets).

From mid-2021, Oggy Bloggy Ogwr will be continuing largely as is. State of Wales will take over from Senedd Home, focusing on in-depth features about Welsh politics and current affairs, fact-checking, satire as well as ongoing work to expand the popular Independence Index.

You can donate as much or as little as you want, but anything that helps contribute to running costs or helps me improve things is appreciated. The support I've received from those of you who've been there since the start or have recently signed up is humbling.

50 people donating £2 a month is the equivalent of ~£1,050 a year (after Patreon's fees). This is about what I would expect as a ballpark bare minimum (particularly when compared to other Welsh outlets).
