GirlAMAtic's Fifth Anniversary
Submitted by Lisa Jonte on March 30, 2008 - 23:04
From the desk of GirlAMAtic editor, Lisa R. Jonté:
Light the candles, GAM is now FIVE YEARS OLD! Hey! We're almost old enough to cross the street by ourselves!
It's been an entertaining ride these last five years. GAM has seen it's share of ups and downs and has happily been the online home of many an excellent comics creator. Sure, we've had some growing pains and toddler tantrums, but we've also had some supremely shining moments, and I wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything.
For the rest of this week, March 31st through April 6th, GAMmers will be posting their birthday cards to the site. At the end of our anniversary week, readers everywhere will have the chance to vote for their favorites in the following categories:
- Most "HOLLYWOOD-SHOULD-TOTALLY-BE-ON-MY-SPEED-DIAL"
- Most "I-AM-MY-OWN-EVIL-TWIN"
- Most "MADE-ME-SNORT-X-BEVERAGE-OUT-MY-NOSE"
- Most "I-TOTALLY-PWN-THOSE-MENSA-DORKS"
- Most "ISH-KA-BIBBLE"
The GAMmers who win will actually get prizes! WOO! STUFF! (Hey, we're five now. Those Pitty Pincess Sparkling Death Ray Kits® don't grow on trees you know!)
Happy Birthday GirlAMatic! This year kindergarten, next year, the WORLD.

NOTE: Due to a last-minute change in plans, GAM's next open call will not begin until May 1st, 2008. That gives you all an extra month to fine tune your submissions; don't waste it!
