Boom Howdy is a pop-culture site devoted to bringing you breaking entertainment news, unique takes on film and podcast shows.

We've been very fortunate to be able to create snarky podcasts, critique movies, write absurd listicles and interact with some of the biggest names in pop culture at San Diego Comic-Con and SXSW all because of this silly website.



The Boom Howdy team has been covering events like Comic-Con and SXSW for the last 7+ years. In order to continue to deliver news and interviews from these kind of events we need our readers help! That is where you come in!

Our passion for pop-culture and film go hand in hand. We want to continue to grow and expand, whether it be paying our staff (we do this all on a volunteer basis) upgrading equipment , creating original video content or producing new podcast shows. Unfortunately the entertainment news and blog industry have become a pay-to-play landscape. Social media algorithms make it tough to use as a true platform to grow our brand without paying for ads. Unless you are owned by a much larger company it's VERY tough to make enough money to even pay our yearly hosting fees - let alone have the money we need to make Boom Howdy live up to the potential we all know it can be.

So I am humbling asking our readers to help us live up to that potential. We couldn't' have gotten this far without you guys spreading the word, reading our articles, listening to our podcasts and following us on social media. Even if you can't donate, spreading the word and considering an indie source for your entertainment news versus a industry giant gives us a TON of support. Someday we would love to create a community that not only loves writing about pop-culture but one that can have a meaningful conversation about cat DJ's that love pizza. Thank you so much for your support!

BREAKING IT DOWN:
Okay, we have your attention but you want some specific details about how we'll spend the money? You betcha! 

Hosting. We need a robust enough hosting plan to support the highest spikes in traffic we ever get so we don't crash during those moments and ruin our happiness.

Our Staff. Right now our fun-lovin' staff is working for free in hopes they get the opportunity to one day run their fingers through Nic Cage's hair. But we can't do it without your help. So with your donations we will be able to pay our staff a monthly fee for creating content. They also will get to eat fine dining like McDonald's to give them the fuel they need to be creative. You guys, I freaking love those nuggets.



Facebook post "boosts". When we announce a new post on Facebook, this makes sure that the announcement gets onto 1/3 or 1/2 of our Facebook followers' News Feeds. Why only 1/3 or 1/2? Because Facebook is a pay-to-play environment and even if you build a large following our promoted posts don't get to all of our followers. It's not fair but that's how it works these days.

SDCC & SXSW. Building our readership and Patreon supporters will help ease the cost of trips to festivals and conventions. Trips to SDCC and SXSW cost upwards of $750+ per person. On average we take 3 - 5 staff members to festivals. Our team coverage includes interviews, breaking news and coverage from the con and festival floor that in our opinion rivals just about any online news outlet.

A couple years ago we made a huge splash with just one person. Not only do we provide breaking news and coverage from cons and festivals but last year our Boom Howdy Strange Things Brand Activation idea got fans involved with a Stranger Things Scavenger Hunt that was called "The most ingenious marketing campaign of Comic Con 2016" by IndieWire. We did it again last year with our Boom Howdy IT Activation. With your help we can continue to bring experiences like these to fans!

Podcast & Video Content. We will also use funds to help provide better podcast equipment for our content creators and potentially start creating bi-monthly video content.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT! IT MEANS THE WORLD TO US! SEE YOU ON THE INTERNET!

Goals
$13 of $200 per month
We created Boom Howdy for fun and still have a lot of passion burning in our belly  for pop-culture and film! Unfortunately in order to play with the big boys we need to pay for larger servers / hosting, more podcast equipment, and social boosts. With your help we can continue to interview people like Nic Cage and probably be totally confused by everything he says.

If we meet our goal of $200 our next level stretch goals will include;

  • Paying Staff Fees ($500)

  • Covering events like SXSW and SDCC ($750)

  • Creating better overall content ($1500)
    Reaching this goal means we can devote more of our time creating better daily content and trending news vlogs and podcasts. Our entire staff works day jobs and this would make a huge impact on rewarding them for their hard work!

Help us reach our goal, expand our staff and grow Boom Howdy!
