Help The Geek Lyfe Grow!
Hey friends! My name is Darth Mexican aka DeAngelo Murillo and I am the founder of The Geek Lyfe! If you are checking out our content for the first time, we are a media outlet focused on geeky news, entertainment, inspiration, and education. We always do our best to support small businesses and charities by promotion, events, or collaboration.
We have an absolute blast doing this and refuse to ever stop or even slow down, no matter road ahead. From the beginning, I poured and still pour a majority of my own personal finances into The Geek Lyfe and have never had an issue with doing so because it is what I am passionate about. I am proud to say that since its creation in 2012, we now have a staff of 20+ from all around the world who help create incredible content and assist with interviews with major influencers.
However, as we grow larger, so do our goals and with those goals come financial burdens. Some of my staff has begun to follow in my steps by pouring their own finances into this wonderful website and that scares me! I know there were many months that I went with barely any money in my account because I paid for trips to California conventions in order to snag an interview or make connections. While I appreciate my staff going to such lengths, I refuse to have them come anywhere near paying a hefty cost to help out. So I have decided to turn to the public for assistance!
Please do not misunderstand us though, we are in no way, shape, or form in any sort of debt. We have gotten this far without financial assistance and we will continue to persevere without it if needed! Hell or high water we promise to deliver fans awesome content! 🙂
At the same time, we know that there are those who support us that would love to see us grow that much faster and have asked time and again if they could give us money. I used to shy away from the notion of receiving money from others because I honestly didn’t think I deserved it. So I tried to create ways for people to pay for goods such as our T Shirts! While this did work for some time, we only really receive $7 per purchase of a $20 shirt and if folks want to keep supporting us financially, they would have to keep buying shirts.
To resolve this we are starting a Patreon and opening a dedicated Paypal for those who would like to support us! I am never comfortable with the idea of getting money for nothing so we are absolutely open to even more coverage of small businesses! If you have a project, event, page or anything and you want it promoted, we will always help you out but if we find out you spent your hard earned cash to help us out then we’ll try our best to do even more to let our readers know all the wonderful things you have been up to!
I appreciate you guys taking the time to read this and thank you so much for all of your support over the years! 🙂
We love you guys!
