Hey there, FemHype crew! Please excuse the interruption. We’ll be getting back to our regularly scheduled articles soon. ✌
As we rapidly approach our one-year anniversary on December 1st, I think it’s important to discuss with all of you what our plans for the future are and how they might come to fruition. Way back when, I created this space in the hope that it would act as a safe, inclusive environment for women and nonbinary folk to discuss video games with others who shared that vision. It has since grown exponentially—far beyond anything I initially conceived—and for that, I want to thank every single person to ever like, comment, or share an article. You’ve helped us reach so many wonderful people, and I’m truly grateful to be working with all of you.
That leads us to today. I’d like very much to continue maintaining this space for you and, quite honestly, to build the FemHype brand as a full-fledged online publishing company. I want to be able to not only publish the incredible work of new and budding journalists in the gaming industry, but to actually compensate them as well, something that is sadly all too rare in this day and age. I want to invite more voices to our YouTube channel, too, and potentially even branch out into a podcast. None of this will happen yet, though, because like anything else, we need funding in order to achieve it.
That’s why we need your help to keep the momentum going! If you like what we’ve started here and you want to see it grow, we have a few ways you can support our work.
For anyone who might not be able to afford assisting in this way, don’t worry! It always helps our work immensely if you share our articles and join in on the discussion. We’re so incredibly grateful to all of you for believing in FemHype. This is all possible because you’re part of this amazing community, and we wouldn’t change that for the world.
Thank you so much for giving all of this a read and for your continued support. It’s been an utterly humbling and transformative experience running this site, and I hope to continue to do that well into the future.
