The British blogger Eliot Higgins, who has played an important role in tracing the flow of arms to Syrian rebels through close analysis of video clips posted on YouTube from his living room in England, began an appeal for financial support from readers this week.
In a statement explaining his campaign on the crowdfunding Web site Indiegogo, Mr. Higgins explained that he hoped “to turn the Brown Moses Blog from a part-time hobby to a full-time job.” Late last month, Mr. Higgins had informed his readers that he might have to stop blogging about Syria if he accepted a full-time job.
I’d like to blog forever, but I’d also like to pay my mortgage, so that looks like it unless I win tonight’s lottery.
