You may or may not have heard about the “We Are! 2013″ preview magazine that some of your favorite Penn State bloggers are set on providing for the fans this summer. Either way, listen up!
I was approached recently by my friend and current BlackShoeDiaries.com co-boss, Jared Slanina, about potentially contributing to a project that would give Penn State fans their very own, detailed preview magazine for 2013. Everybody buys the Phil Steele or Athlon previews and immediately flips to the 2-3 pages of Penn State content first. What Jared was describing was 100+ pages of Nittany Lions for Penn Staters, by Penn Staters.
It’s safe to say that he had my attention, but then he threw out the names of some of the cast already on board: Former BSDers Mike Pettigano and Jeff Junstrom, former VBR boss Ben Jones, Cari Greene, Devon Edwards, Lou Prato… How could I say no to an opportunity to work with a group of All-Stars from the Penn State media/blogosphere?
Now we need your help! The We Are! 2013 kickstarter page is now live, where you can pledge to make We Are! 2013 a reality. Donation packages have been set so that you may receive a “It’s Not a State, It’s a Culturewealth” t-shirt or hoody, We Are! 2013 sent to your home address prior to the publication date, and even a tailgate with your favorite Penn State bloggers. And trust me, I’m a BLAST to tailgate with.
Check out the We Are! 2013 Kickstarter Page to learn more about the project including how to pre-order your Penn State preview magazine!
