Just a quick note to say it’s our birthday here at Arseblog News.

Somehow (please someone, tell us where the time has gone?!) we’ve turned 11 years old.

On behalf of Blogs and the team, I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone for taking the time to read our work over the last 12 months.

Whether you engage in comment section sparring, send us translations of foreign articles, tip us off when stories are set to break or just dip in and out as you fancy, we thank you for being part of a community that continues to go from strength to strength.

We’ve now surpassed 6,600 supporters on Patreon, which really is quite something.

Not only does the subscription income ensure all our contributors get paid for their work, but it’s also allowed us to expand – under Tim’s expert management – our coverage of the Women’s team, to forego some of the pesky display advertising that tends to make for a miserable reader experience and afforded us the chance to make a very tidy donation to UNICEF.

We’re very proud of that.

As a little thank you, we’ve organised for everyone in the UK to have the next two days off work. Go wild. Let your hair down. Pretend you’re in the Tuesday Club.

For those of you not in the UK, we offer you a high five as a thank you.

As always, we have to sign off with the annual ‘State of the Arse’ address, so here we go…
