Hey GANG!

I’ve been running around like a chicken without a head – in a GOOD way!  We’re working on launching new shows, do some giveaways and contests, and keep the momentum going.  Pardon the marketing talk but, really, momentum rocks..  We are making big moves!

What momentum am I talking about?  Peep the video version of The GANG Minute.

 

…And now for some highlights and latest haps!

Geeky Antics Network Launch Party

What is this business about a launch party?  Well, it’s more like a marketing campaign but that’s boring.  This is a big celebration.

  • We are celebrating hitting some big milestones during our soft launch/beta phase – 3K+ fans on Facebook – w00t!
  • We are celebrating our awesome shows, collaborators, contributors, and supporters.
  • We are celebrating the influx of donations in the form of love, monetary support, games, services, etc.
  • We are celebrating YOU!

There’s no end date for the campaign.  Basically, the better the results, the more we will keep it going.  We need your help.

Tell your friends about what we are doing here.  The Geeky Antics network is here to help geeks liberate their content and level the playing field.  The 1% dominates so many spaces, podcasting and streaming inclusive, and we want to empower others to get A-Lister results without losing their souls.  We hope this excites our community as much as our contributors.

I am passionate about our mission to bring quality, authentic geeky content to a more global audience.  Our vision is simple: we want to be a Geek & Sundry that will focus more on engagement and niche content with a simple approach, rather than featuring huge personalities or focusing on high production value.  We’re hoping by celebrating and creating the good kind of hype, we can rally more people behind these core values and ideals.

As part of this campaign, we will launch several events and new content series.  This includes, but is not limited to, giveaways, contests, podcasts, streams, marathons, and fundraisers.  Nothing is set in stone because we like to stay nimble so we will play off each other.  Please help us out by sharing our excitement with your friends and family.

 

New Features, Content, And Goodies

We have a CRAP-TON of awesome new features and goodies on the new Geeky Antics site.  Here’s a quick run-through:

  • Site registration
  • Custom profiles & avatars
  • LIVE TV
  • Achievements
  • Friending
  • Forums
  • YouTube sharing
  • Twitter sharing
  • Open commenting

That’s just for starters.  We’ll go more in-depth during HorsePLAY! LIVE so be sure to join us on the GeekyAntics Twitch channel Thursday at 9pm EDT.

One of the most exciting things we are adding are two new areas.  The first will allow us to do fundraising for individual contributors and the network as a whole.  The biggest one is our Storytelling section.  Here, we will feature community submissions in the form of short stories, fan fiction, haikus, or whatever other creative writing you guys share with us.  We will also share stuff from aspiring authors and other awesome geeks you might have heard of (Nika Harper, we’re looking at you).

Please keep checking back.  We’re doing constant updates to the site and they’re all kind of a big deal. *grin*
