We did it, friends! One year ago today, I posted “Girls, Guts, & Gaming,” the first article to appear on FemHype. In it, I hoped to convey a concept that still holds true now, perhaps more than ever before:
“FemHype is for everyone. Full-stop. You’re welcome here simply because you’re reading this, just as you’re welcome in a world the moment you insert a disk or load an app.”
I couldn’t have possibly known how much our little community would grow in the months that followed, but I’m so glad that I decided to take the biggest risk of my life by launching this space. All of you—writers, contributors, readers, Patreon supporters, and lurkers alike—mean the world to me. It’s thanks to your creativity and enthusiasm that FemHype has thrived, and I’m honored to stand at the helm of all our work. You make me proud to get up every morning, because reading your comments and seeing your likes makes this journey so worthwhile.
In honor of our one-year anniversary, we’ll be running a sale on our Etsy store and hosting a special giveaway! For free shipping on all of our Etsy products, use the code FEMHYPE1YEAR. This offer will last until Monday, December 7th. If you’re interested in the giveaway, we’re handing out a $50 gift card to use as you like! It will be made available on either Ps4, Xbox One, or Steam, which the winner will be free to choose.
Read on for full instructions! We’ll save a piece of cake for you in the meantime. 🎂 (It’s not a lie, promise!)
That’s it! If you have any questions, leave a comment below and we’ll get back to you. Good luck! ✌
