How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Crowdfunding
I have a guest post up today at Tenured Radical about crowdfunding in the humanities. Really, it’s just a narrative of what I did to get the Kickstarter page up, running, and promoted, but hopefully it helps get a conversation about academic crowdfunding started. I’m also a big fan of TR, so it’s exciting to have something up there!
Over at my oral history project WordPress page, I announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to cover some project costs. Click over there to check it out, or just go straight to the Kickstarter page.
One week to go–my, how the summer just flies by. So, how goes?
I want to highlight a new link in the sidebar–my friend Caroline Genco leaves this week to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in Malawi, and she’s blogging about her experience. Caroline is the mother of Christina, a dear friend, fellow Bike and Builder, and amazing young woman who passed away last summer as the result of a road collision. Caroline is working with HfH’s Global Village program in Christina’s memory, and has established the Christina Genco Foundation in her daughter’s honor. Check out Caroline’s blog and consider donating to either the Christina Genco Foundation or Habitat for Humanity Global Village, if you can.
Today would have been Christina’s birthday. Happy birthday, girl. Miss you lots.
Christina and her mom, Caroline.
Not even really sure what to say here. Two weeks left in the summer, let’s get this done. Tell us about your progress in the comments.
