Hi guys! Thank you so much for your support over the 12 years we’ve been covering Long Beach sports together. It means the world to us that we get to do our dream job every day, and that we get to do it in a community that appreciates and values that work.
Here’s the deal: last year more than 170,000 people were on our website, with hundreds of thousands more on our Youtube and social media. We love that we’re reaching so many readers in the city of Long Beach, but if we don’t get more subscribers this year, it will be our last one covering Long Beach sports.
We are launching the 2019-20 sports season with a new and improved version of our Patreon, which is the easiest way readers can support our work. Our Patreon now has two tiers–a $5 subscriber tier, and a $10 booster tier that will come with some cool goodies.
We’re asking for your help getting the word out today and every day–we want to be around forever, and only you can help us do that. If only 1% of our readership signs up, we’ll be fully funded and able to plan for the future.
Last year we posted more than 2,000 stories, videos, and photo galleries–our work was recognized by the Los Angeles Press Club and the California Newspapers Publishers Association as among the best in the state. Your help ensures that 2019-20 will be an even better year, and that there will be even more to come!
Thanks so much, and go Long Beach!
