It started with a question:

"Do you have a blog or anything?"

I was at Dragon Con and had just been sitting on one of my first panels. At the time, all I really had was a Twitter account, a little-used livejournal, and my personal Facebook page.

Next thing I know, I've registered a domain name and secured some site hosting for justtegan.com. I'd initially planned just using it as a place to blog and share my many opinions on things. It wouldn't be until a couple of years later that the site would really come into its own. While it took some time to really get things rolling, I finally found my footing earlier this year.

Fortunately, I haven't had to make this journey on my own. Micah, has been instrumental in pushing JustTegan forward from a pet project into something more. He's the web designer and my go-to guy when I've needed a nudge. With his assistance and prodding, I've gone beyond blogging and now share reviews, pop-culture lists, and compilations of upcoming conventions and other geek-centric events in the weekly Weekend in Geek.

Every week, there's a new blog post, a new list, the Weekend in Geek, and a new review (or two). We both spend a lot of time trying to make this site as entertaining in possible. Furthermore, we try to incorporate other perspectives in our discussions. With Micah's biracial background and my own as a queer woman, we know that my voice and voices like ours are still in the minority. Part of the goal with JustTegan is to join the growing choir of voices calling for change and discussing why some of the things we love are problematic in some areas.

I love working on the site. I love the challenge in presents every week. That said, the site hosting and domain registration cost money. On top of that, we have so much more that we want to do with JustTegan. We want to expand into podcasts, videos, and so much more. For us to get there, we're going to need financial help from wonderful people like you. Become a part of this project and help us create something great.

As you can already see, JustTegan.com isn't Just me, Tegan. Whenever you read any of our postings and jump in on the conversations, it includes you too. Because geekdom is a place where everybody should be welcome. Become a part of this project and help us create something great. Because it is just damn fun. Because deep down, we are all JustTegan.

You will get my undying gratitude and a virtual hug or a real hug if you're nearby and I know you. I've noticed that hugging random strangers can be occasionally awkward.

Goals
$0 of $50 per month
Once we reach $50 a month, I'm going to start my very own podcast. While I'm a frequent contributor to other podcasts, I don't have one of my own. Yet. The podcast would be full of more JustTegan goodness as I share more of my opinions, reactions, and even get some of our friends involved. Yes. This is where we are hinting at interviews. So get excited! We are! It will initially be once a month with hopes to expand to more episodes as time goes by.
