Travel: We Have a Go FUnd Me for Conventions!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! I will be reviewing Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 later on today but right now I need to talk serious with you all!

Well, with the four years of doing press at conventions it has gotten very expensive and it is hard for us to not only travel with the hiking gas prices every winter and summer formula of oil being put into the tanks and pumps at gas stations and in cars but there is also food, parking prices like at the Marriot World Center, MetroCons surrounding parking lots, heck even over at MegaCon with the lots too. Plus, we do consider on thinking of hotel time to time but we don’t have enough money to get a room which the last time we did that was at the LaQuinta during Anime Festival Orlando 2015 which is not bad for a price. And of course what if we want to get our own video camera since Nerdy Shirts is letting us borrow the camera from his brother and that can get risky and I do have my IPad with low memory and trying to fix that and thinking of upgrading since I do use it for copying schedules in Numbers and of course use it for back up notes and sometimes camera work. Yes, I know a lot of expenses to consider as a press guy since we do consider ourselves among convention goers since we have to think of the same things time to time besides the usual cosplay issue.

That is why I created a Go Fund Me for us to help out with these issues. As you know I haven’t been working an actual job and have been trying to do the monetization on our YouTube content but some videos can’t be monetized for copyright claims since now we know what to do during Holiday Matsuri if we get the press pass this year and we all know that YouTUbe is having a lot of companies that provide ads pulling out due to certain content that is posted which YouTube did make new guidelines for last year. Which to tell you the truth, we aren’t getting that many views even though we have over 32K views but it is not that much. Plus, my first book only sold two copies and my next one won’t come out until early September and I am still working on my career stuff while Gondras is still going through school and same with Nerdy Shirts on top of it and Gondras just works part time and has bills like everyone. So, that is why hoping the Go Fund Me will help. Why not do Patreon? We were thinking of that for the moment since everyone is on there but I realized we don’t post as much on YouTube and yes I can put more things on there but everyone has their beauty stuff when we do more of convention videos which that draws a lot more views than my beauty videos which I did try along with a haul and taste testing. I may go back to it but with Patreon, most people draw for most people and come up with shirts but I am not at that stage yet. I am at the business cards stage! I do make keychains though not sure how people would like that. It is something to consider but Go Fund Me is the one to go at this time!

And now, finally what did we title it? Well, it’s called Nerdy Shique Universe Travels because we are trying to go to many conventions in Florida, we even want to go back to MetroCon since we did like the convention and had great experiences so far well except having a panel pushed back. Of course, our goal would be SuperCon in Miami for next year and many others outside of the states in the future since we want to expand our press scope to others. Plus, I do consider conventions part of travel since not only we are enjoying three or four days at one but there are other parts of a city we want to explore, for instance, when we went to Metro back in 2013 we drove around the first night before we found Sonic because it has been years since I been back to Tampa for Busch Gardens and Gondras rarely got to see Tampa for more than that and it’s good to know about your surroundings. So, we will be covered for gas, parking fees, and if we want any hotel expenses since it does become a task finding parking for a day. Also, for any equipment we might consider in the future since besides our usual travel problems, we do have that to consider!

In case if you are wondering, our starting goal is $1,500 at the moment but may change later but it is a start! Please donate if you can! Whether it’s $1 or $10, it will help us get to where we need to go when it comes to what we want to do!

So, that is about it and the link for the Go Fund Me is at:

Oops! Actually our goal according to Go Fund me is $150,000!?
