The time has come to end one era and begin a new one.
The team at Whaleoil and I are moving on to a new and exciting online venture. Today is the last day that we will provide active new content for the Whaleoil blog.
Don’t despair a new website and platform has been established so that readers can continue to enjoy informed and challenging content, along with the news that the mainstream media refuses to cover.
If you are an existing Whaleoil subscriber the new site will honour your subscription at the new site. Just visit The BFD and login. We hope you will.
It has been nearly 15 years since Whaleoil’s creator and editor Cameron Slater posted his first post. During that time Whaleoil became New Zealand’s number one most popular and most-read blog. It has won numerous blog awards including a Canon Media Award for Best Blog and to date, it has had two works of fiction written about it.
Started in 2005 as a personal project to help combat depression, Whaleoil grew to what we know it is now, a vibrant community of like-minded people who embrace the freedoms that liberal western democracy has given us. We value those freedoms highly.
The end of one era but the start of a new one. I wish them well.
