November is fundraising month at NiCHE. We’re asking our readers, supporters, and fans to help us continue doing what we love by donating through our Fundrazr page. The money we raise will help us continue to pay our part-time editor and social media manager, provide honoraria to precariously employed contributors, and cover our webhosting and operational costs.

But perhaps you’re wondering, “What’s NiCHE done for me lately?” It’s easy to overlook all the work we’ve been doing, because there’s been so much of it that maybe you don’t remember life without it! So here’s a little review of what NiCHE has published in 2022.

As of November 14, NiCHE had published or was scheduled to publish 233 posts in 2022! That’s roughly 4.7 posts per week, or about one post every weekday (not including our two week December break)!

Our editors organized eleven (!!) series this year, which amounted to a total of 69 posts! You can check out all the posts from each of them by clicking on the links in the list below.
