About the Authors

We could write all kinds of things here. Or link to all sorts of things. We have Twitter accounts. We have a Facebook page. And a Tumblr. And an Instagram. We’re not always the most active on the social media, but we can be found and reached there!

We are but simple geeks and bloggers here. So we thought we would share some of our favorites and observations on the culture here! Check out the side bar for all the authors on the blog, a number of guest bloggers have graced the blog as well!

  6. Hey,

    I’m Jen from Another Castle, and wanted to drop by to offer a proposition for you. If you’re interested in expanding your readership, we’re always looking for contributors. You can post the same material you would on here and provide an ‘About the Author’ at the bottom of each of your pieces that will lead back to Comparative Geeks.

    As for us, we’re a small group of writers, mostly new, dedicated to ‘All Things Nerd’. We help train writers on journalistic style writing, how to develop media relationships, and provide support as a community. Our readership continues to grow month after month, currently providing news, reviews, previews, and lists for more than 15,000 readers a month.

    Let me know if this would be something you’d be interested in, and we can get you aboard almost immediately. Regardless, keep up the awesome pieces and I’ll keep coming back!

    Best of everything,

    Jen

    • Hi Jen! Sorry we have not replied sooner, we have been mulling over your offer. We are excited by the prospect of contributing to Another Castle, especially as you guys started around the same time we did, and you were some of the first folks reading our blog.

      What we don’t have for you yet is any idea of what we would write for you! I’m seeing some need maybe for more posts in areas like TableTop gaming, or maybe Reviews. Do you have something in mind, maybe given what you’ve read and liked here on our blog? Or things that you would like to see more of based on the categories and sections on Another Castle?

      Let us know!

      • Essentially, whatever you already have/will post on your site. Just reformatted.

        • I guess one other thing… we are doing the April A to Z Challenge, so our posts this month aren’t really our normal fare. We could set up our writer profiles? You could post an existing post from our archives? We’re excited!

          • That sounds fun. Yeah, I’ll be setting up about the authors this week for everyone, as well. Did you get the invite and all that jazz? Did I give you my contact email? Sorry, it’s been an intensely busy week.
