From The Murky Depths is creating a news website covering London

patrons

I'm the creator of From The Murky Depths (as a one man band).

I've been able to increase the number of articles recently and I hope you both enjoy them and find the content interesting and revealing.

The aim is to write more content and who knows, maybe one day get enough to do it full time.

The site is concerned with covering news and events in London. It's mainly south east London though I hope to expand coverage and recently have done a bit more on Canary Wharf, Canning Town and the Royal Docks.

Patreon is an American site meaning you see dollars but it is converted to pounds when donating. 

The costs of running the site and time spent doing so have all increased in recent months. I hope to maintain existing levels of articles, plus expand content and coverage in different areas too. But to do so needs help. Especially with the very high cost of living in London and making rent each month. It's more overtime or time to research and write articles I hope you find interesting.

It can be a lengthy process writing up posts - travelling for photos, researching, emailing and calling people, trawling documents (this can be particularly tedious!) and more, and a little help will go a long way in allowing me to dedicate more time.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Tiers
15 mins of London Living Wage
$3 or more per month
You are helping to cover hosting site fees and travelling to different sites and areas to research issues.  It equals about £3.50 including VAT and Patreon fees. Less than a pint (well, not in spoons)


Half the London Living Wage
$6.25 or more per month
This works out about half the London Living wage rate for 1 hour.

A monthly newsletter will be sent with some bonus bits and highlighting the best from other local websites.


This is around £6 after VAT and Patreon fees 

One hour of London Living Wage
$12.50 or more per month
This sum is roughly the same as an hours pay at London Living Wage level. The more is received the more time can be dedicated to the site.

90 mins of Living Wage
$18.50 or more per month
This is roughly what it can take to write one of the shorter articles. I would be chuffed.

I will create a page on the site on the drop down top menu which will highlight those who help out and your name could be here...only if you want of course.
Two hours of London Living Wage
$25 or more per month
This amount is roughly two hours London Living Wage levels. Some articles can take many hours to put together. I'd be over the moon with this amount. This would greatly help to pay costs and all the other bills needed to run a wide-ranging site.

I will create a page on the site on the drop down top menu which will highlight those who help out and your name could be here...only if you want of course.
Died and gone to heaven
$50 or more per month
This would be stunning and really help me devote to the site full time.

At this level the sum would really allow much more time to be focused on stories all over London, as well as in-depth trawling of documents, travelling to meet people and more needed for big stories.

It'd be a huge help.
