On March 2010 Newsnet Scotland dot com was launched. No funds to speak of, no media promotion and no helpful contacts within Scotland's journalistic community to assist in those lonely early days. It was citizen journalism in the raw.
Costs, such as they were, were borne from the pockets of the people who set the site up. Articles were written by those same volunteers – supplemented by the kind generosity of Kenneth Roy of the Scottish Review who allowed us to re-publish his own work.
