Hypable is a place to critique, report on, and celebrate fandom. Free of corporate overlords who control our message, our voices, and our interests, we are a website where fans write about their passions. Whether we’re criticizing or praising, we’re always speaking from the heart. We’re not writing fluff content to please the masses. We’re writing what we know fans really want to read, including pieces about smaller fandoms that “big” sites don’t have time for.
But there’s a problem with our model: The internet is rapidly changing, and for publishers, it’s a challenging time to turn a profit. The only ways to generate revenue are to have those aforementioned corporate overlords, or by pestering readers with an absurd amount of advertising.
We don’t want to put ads in your face, we don’t want bosses who control our content, and we don’t want to create clickbait or annoying slideshows just to make money. We want to spend our time creating amazing, clean, passionate articles about Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, comic shows and movies, YA books, all those amazing Netflix shows, and every other fandom we love (There are SO many).
This is where you come in. By joining us on Patreon — a Kickstarter of sorts for internet creators — you’ll help us become one of the first websites to be significantly supported by fans. In exchange for your support, and without the need to spend our time and ruin your experience dealing with advertising, we’ll focus exclusively on serving you excellent content.
We would only do this if we could do it right, and we’re proud to say we’ve tied Patreon’s system in with our website, meaning that Hypable knows when you’re a Patron. With Hypable and Patreon connected on the backend, the site’s frontend can present you very special features that non-Patrons won’t have access to.
