I'm not sure if Graveyard Shift Sisters would be here if not for Black Girl Nerds. It took a bit of stepping out of the deep, comfort zone contributing work on another blog at the time, but I'm glad I did. I will be forever in debt to Jamie for her kindness, patience, and inspiration.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Virginia Beach, VA – Jamie Broadnax is pleased to announce the launch Black Girl Nerds on Patreon!
BLACK GIRL NERDS – Started in 2012 is an online community for Black women who are self-identified nerds and geeks. The site also has a weekly podcast and a social media community that has made an impact in pop culture entertainment.
We are officially now on Patreon! The crowdfunding space is one that has been a long time coming for BGN. Many fans and followers of Black Girl Nerds have asked us if we have a Patreon and I personally have been dragging my feet.
Well now we are finally launched it! In addition to the outline of what are financial needs are, I have also presented a video to let you know specifically what we are asking for and why. I look forward to the opportunity to allowing this space to grow with your support and give you the coverage you deserve as a nerd outlet!
Currently we are on the comic con circuit as press and need help with travel expenses and equipment! Help us make our goal before SDCC begins! The link for the BGN Patreon is:
