I discuss Monster Pulse this week on Wednesday’s webcomic! It’s a young adult supernatural horror and adventure story; a take on the Kids-and-monsters genre.
This week, I talked about Bucko by Jeff Parker and Erika Moen, A Comedic Murder Mystery. The Comedy, the murder, and the mystery are entirely unrelated.
It occurs to me I should be sharing the articles I’ve been writing over at GonnaWeek.com with WordPress here. This week, I talk about the first webcomic to really get me hooked, Dylan Meconis’s Bite Me! a hilarious trek through the French Revolution with vampires. Vampires and guillotines really don’t mix, by the way.
I’ve recorded an audio version of my essay about Mary Sues and it has been published with a few others in the Nerdologues: Your Stories podcast. Give it a listen!
As a diehard Reader user, i was nigh frantic when I learned that Reader was being shut down. I don’t know if Word Press will be as good, but I’m willing to try.
The big news on the internet the last couple of days has been that seminal RSS reader Google Reader will be shutting down on July 1, 2013. Google Reader had lots of fans, including many of us here at Automattic, but it’s time to move on.
Speaking of moving on from Google Reader, did you know that you can import your subscriptions directly from Google Reader into the WordPress.com Reader? We launched the Reader about 18 months ago; it’s responsive to fit any size screen, you can like and reblog WordPress.com content without leaving the news stream, and if you run out of new posts to read, you can discover new content in the Recommended Blogs section.
To import your subscriptions, just visit the WordPress.com Reader import page; you’ll be reading your feeds in the WordPress.com Reader in three clicks or less, or your money back.
