Welcome to The Geek Lyfe!

What is The Geek Lyfe?

The Geek Lyfe is an independent media outlet focused on delivering our readers inspiration, education, and entertainment. We focus on creating inclusive content that features the hard work of Indies, PoC, LGBTQ, and more!

What separates us from the rest:

  • The majority of our staff are incredible women.
  • Minority-owned.
  • We constantly raise money for charity.
  • We organize events to help our community grow.
  • Our team is international to help us further highlight fantastic geeks from all around the world.

Ways to help us grow

  • Sharing our content helps us entertain, educate, and inspire more people.
  • Patreon is a steroid for our brand as it provides us the funding to get what we need to get to that next level in terms of events and equipment.
  • Buying our swag gets you awesome merchandise and gets us finances to grow.

Represent Us and Earn a Free Convention Pass!

Hey friends! The Geek Lyfe is looking to expand our coverage, both nationally and internationally! In order to do this, we are opening up a method to work with freelancers so they can attend a convention on our behalf. We will supply them with a press pass, and in return they bring us back photos and a review of the event! That way the freelancer saves money, and we get assistance with coverage!

How the process works:
-You’ll want to join our official Discord server: https://discord.gg/pFcsdwR
-In public chat, say your brand name and request to become a ‘Sell Sword’ (which is our official geeky name for freelancers internally) or ‘Freelancer’
-When granted the role, you will be given access to our dedicated channel where you can request a pass to a convention.
-If the convention is not already being covered by our staff or another Sell Sword, then you most likely will get it.
-We request the press pass.
-You cover the convention by providing us a selfie with the badge, 20 photos of the con per day, and a written review, all due 2 weeks after the end of the convention! You also have to abide by our convention etiquette, but that’s no big deal.

If someone consistently provides coverage for us as a freelancer, we may extend an offer to become staff resulting in first dibs on conventions, product reviews, paid projects, etc. If they choose to stay a Sell Sword, then they are favored over other Sell Swords who are applying due to their continued hard work and dedication.

(NOTE: High profile conventions such as San Diego Comic Con, E3, Blizzcon, etc. are for staff only.)

THE BAD STUFF
We’ve unfortunately been burned in the past by various folks who take passes and are late, never provide content, or provided far less than what was agreed upon. This makes our outlet look unprofessional to the convention who granted us their pass and can hurt business relationships.

If you are late on submitting content, it is a 3 month ban. If someone completely ghosts us, it is a permanent ban.

There are redemption methods for those with unexpected circumstances or other conflicts that resulted in letting us down, but our requirements are so lenient that it should not be necessary. If you’re unable to meet the requirements or they feel overwhelming, just let us know and we’ll be happy to reassign a pass or withdraw! If you do ever encounter any issues as a freelancer, communication is the best way to maintain your good standing with The Geek Lyfe!

If you have any questions feel free to ask through email, info@thegeeklyfe.com, or on Discord! We are looking for anywhere besides Arizona for convention coverage!

Thanks guys!
