The comic blogosphere seems to grow larger every day and just like comics, sometimes it’s pretty easy to get a little lost. “Meanwhile …” will act as your map, pointing out what interesting discussions are happening out there while you’re reading Blog@Newsarama.
A few words about the process I use for writing “Meanwhile…” before we start. A behind the scenes look, if you will.
I start off with a list of blogs, now numbering close to 250, that you can find on my sidebar at Near-Mint Heroes. I then open each one up in the browser and go through each and every blog listed to see if there is anything interesting going on. For this version of “Meanwhile…” I came up with 84 links. That’s a little too many so I have to narrow it down further. Then I set down to write the little verbage around the links, find a lyric for the title, and put everything in some kind of order that probably only I understand anyway. After that I go to sleep, wake up in the morning, look the column over one more time (usually fix a few links that I forgot to close) and it’s finished.
Anyway, this is all leading up to the making this two-part “Meanwhile…” column and also asking for some audience participation. If you, the readers of Meanwhile, see any new blogs that might not be on my list, or any interesting posts during the week, please send them to shane at nearmintheroes dot org. I’ll be sure to mention you when I link to the blog or post. Thanks in advance and I’m looking forward to seeing what I’m missing each week.
Now on with the links.
