Geek Culture ZA
The Geek Culture Blog, originally on the Land of Gamers website, was officially re-launched as Geek Culture ZA (GCZA) on 1st February. It is a website continuing its path but now with more room to grow. The GCZA blog is dedicated to the promotion and continued support of those within the geek community. It is our mission to be a place for growth, creativity, and success for everyone from cosplay to coders to twitch streamers. We feature locals of the geek community on the front page, including artists, twitch streamers, YouTube gamers, bloggers, and cosplayers.
The blog also has features and extensive articles covering individuals in the community and their talents.
We are proud of our ever-growing “GRANDIFEROUS DIRECTORY OF GEEKERY,” which has been set up to be a place for individuals in the community with a small business or specific skill to be listed. Looking for a graphic designer or an illustrator? Chances are you’ll find them there. We also cover events, do reviews, and give interesting and entertaining content to our viewers.
Our current project is a comic strip contest to promote local comic artists, with votes for favorites done via social media and the website by the community. The winners will be given four weeks to display their art, with a new strip every Sunday. This will not only boost our visitors on our lowest day (Sundays, please note Chart 1 below) but also give people a reason to come back at least once a week. The coverage on social media and interest by the community to support their favorite artists during the competition will also boost exposure.
We also have Sean Izaakse, a JHB comic artist known for his work with Pathfinder and Marvel, happy to help spread the word through his own social media. This is just one of many exciting things to come on GCZA. Reviews will also be covered by local YouTube blogs and gamers, as well as streamers in the twitch community during live streams. This can only improve exposure for the community, small businesses, and others we support. The blog displays all posts on social media including Facebook, Instagram, and twitter. Live events will be especially covered through Instagram with both pictures and videos
