Welcome to Lumpz Media
(If you'd prefer to do a one-time donation, we have a PayPal for that.)

I'm Lumpz the Clown, CEO of Lumpz Media, a media website that focuses on honest tech reviews, big pretty infographics, deep-dive niche research pieces, and humorous articles. This website is admin'd by myself and David Kirby, a renowned author who's work has appeared on Forbes and Huffington Post, as well as an avid gamer with a huge crush on the PS2.

As for myself, I started my own YouTube channel way back in 2013 with no aspirations to start a website. Shortly after, I started writing video game reviews and walkthroughs for various retro games from my childhood, but didn't like the majority of the big websites that were available for publication. Wanting to avoid a soul-crushing editorial process from a corporate peon that may or may not have an ulterior agenda, I started a Blogger page and thus, the foundation for Lumpz Media was born.

We pride ourselves on:
  • Actively avoiding corporate sponsorship.
  • Having complete control over our content.
  • Painstakingly conducting deep dive research to give you the best content possible.
  • Building a fun and educational resource for gamers, by gamers.
  • Not employing spammy website practices like pop-ups, autoplay videos, or aggressive ad placements.

Long story short, you'll never have to endure an AdBlocker nag screen, long load times, or nonsense product placements/endorsements at Lumpz Media. We'd rather empower, educate, and entertain our visitors rather than annoy them with ads because we feel the same Hell-spawned hatred when we encounter these online abominations ourselves.

So Why Patreon?
Website Costs
Luckily for us, our website maintenance costs are minimal (~$100/year) due to our design choices. However, since we moved to this URL from another almost a year ago, we've had to lease the old URL and variations of it from Google Domains to avoid lengthy redirect lists.

We're constantly looking for ways to reduce our load times, increase usability, and make our website easy to navigate and somewhere people will want to visit, perhaps getting a laugh while also being enlightened.

Livestreams
As of right now, all livestreams occur on my own personal Twitch channel, but as our community grows, we'll be launching our own dedicated Twitch channel featuring a variety of streamers. We're ever on the hunt for ways to bump up our production value, whether it's through something as simple as a webcam upgrade, or something more complex like an ISP or PC upgrade.

Once our future Twitch channel becomes an Affiliate, we will be dividing any earnings between streamers, adjusted for scale over time. We like to reward our community whenever we can, and will aim to provide you the best quality in entertainment you'll find across the Interwebz.

Original Shows
I've already covered a plethora of topics ranging from how Sneak King and Manhunt are basically the same game to how sideseat gamers are the bane of our entire existence.

In the future, we plan on upping our game by including short comedy skits, mashups, and even a more professional revival of the Social Friends Wrestling Federation, a fictional wrestling camp comprised of some of our online friends and currently powered by ECW Hardcore Revolution on PS1, featuring color commentary from your Lumpz Media admins.

So How Else Does Lumpz Media Make Money?
We are an Amazon affiliate website. In some of our articles, we may include links to products we talk about (even if we don't like them), from which we receive a small commission should a visitor make a purchase.

This is all done at no additional cost to our visitors. We talk about a product, link to it, and the visitor gets something awesome at the listed price, from which we collect a small fee. More information on the Amazon fee schedule can be viewed here.

My own Twitch channel is an Affiliate, and I make a percentage off of any sales I make from my Recommended Products extension panel.

Any earnings that I make through these channels are funneled directly back into Lumpz Media, and anything earned in excess will go directly towards site/equipment upgrades and hiring staff where needed.

Aside from that, Lumpz Media is completely paid for out of my own pocket.

We abhor newsletters, and will never ask for your email address or otherwise spam you when you visit us. Seriously, we've aggregated about every annoying thing we've encountered when visiting bigger websites, and pledge (in blood) to never employ any of those practices on our own website.

I am fully invested in the overall vision for Lumpz Media, and am thankful to everyone who believes in it as well. You are truly the cogs that keep us turning, and I can't thank you enough.
