Here at Daily Cannon we have some really big plans and have ideas for things that have never or rarely been done before in the niche of Arsenal. But these bigger projects take time and resources.
We’ve tried various ways of funding those, including going down the transfer nonsense/lots of clicks route, but we ended up hating ourselves and driving away readers who have been with the site since it began in 2008 as LadyArse.
Back then, it was just one person dishing up a daily blog. Now, we’ve grown to a team of writers and designers, all of whom get paid just about enough so they can live on soup. It also costs a lot to run a server that can handle large volumes of traffic, so between all that, we need to bring in thousands of pounds each month to keep going.
