We will not be doing coverage of Magic/Project this week. In years past, I would go and meet with the brands. Then cover them the weeks after. It is a great chance to get face time with brands. Talk to them about what they have planned and see how we can help them get the word out on their new lines. Last August we sent Undies Rock to cover the show for us. Unfortunately, this year I wasn’t able to attend due to costs and no one else was able to fill in.
But there is a way you can help us go to Magic. Many people I have talked to ask why we do a Patreon program for the blog. This is one of the reasons. Travel is expensive when going to Las Vegas. I am able to do it for around $1,000 – $1,200 and that’s on a budget. For each person that goes, it will be roughly that much.
We want to use the money you guys give us to expand our video content, travel to LA and Vegas to meet with brands, buy review pairs and more. We get some money for advertising but it doesn’t cover all we want to do and cover for you guys. I personally think that getting time in front of brands has been key to the success of UNB. It’s not that we cover the brands, we know the people behind them.
Everyone who writes at UNB is a massive underwear lover. From myself down to our newest guy. We have a big passion and do it on a small budget. We do a lot on a small budget! We only seem big and glamorous. lol We hope you will consider donating $1 to us a month. If we had half of our readers to donate $1 we could travel and do a lot more!
Visit the UNB Patreon page for more information to donate or contact us here for more information. I will be happy to answer any questions.
