SAN FRANCISCO, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In an industry that's typically dominated by men, Karen Tumbokon is breaking the mold, bringing a fresh perspective and woman's voice to technology and gaming news with her new website Techiegamers.com. The website, launching March 27, 2017, features an array of news from the technology, entertainment, and gaming industries. Truly her passion, Tumbokon has done everything herself in preparation for the launch, from the design to the content to marketing and promotion.
"I'm very excited about the launch of Techiegamers.com. I have been wanting to create my own site for a few years now but have let fear hold me back, which is why I believe there aren't enough women in tech or gaming," says Tumbokon. "This is a pretty bold move, as most of the technology and games sites are run by men. I'm hoping with the launch of the site, I am able to give women in tech and gaming a space to go to and empower them to follow their dreams."
Tumbokon has been a long-time technology reporter and freelance writer for sites like International Business Times (IBTimes.com), Heavy.com, and DigitalTrends.com. During her last month at IBTimes, she brought in more than 500,000 views, which helped Tumbokon make the decision to venture out on her own. Another one of her articles for IBTimes, "How Do You Go Live On Instagram? Livestream, Feed Update Rolls Out" gained 180,000 views in just two days.
During her career, Tumbokon has also been able to secure interviews with some industry heavy hitters including the godfather of hip-hop, Russell Simmons , about his mobile app, Meditation Made Simple and Sir Roger Moore about his mobile application, GivingTales. She has also interviewed celebrities such as Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Dave Franco, among others about their hit movie "Neighbors."
Drawing on her vast experience and passion, Tumbokon will create similar content on her new website, keeping a focus on the latest news, reviews, and other information on video games and the tech industry. For more information about the new site and to read its latest news, visit Techiegamers.com
