A few weeks ago I announced a weekly news round up of webcomic news. For those who follow the webcomic scene, you’ve noticed the weekly feature has languished. The big issue for me is that by waiting for each Wednesday to publish the round-up, some of the items are stale and finding time to gather, read, understand and write the brief took more time than I anticipated.
So, here’s what changes going forward. Since most of those into the webcomic crowd already use Twitter and it’s a much faster means of publishing (I only have to write a headline and not a story) I will begin today “tweeting” the webcomic news through my Twitter account (@dailycartonist) instead of the weekly write-up. Followers of my “tweets” will get this blog’s headlines, as well as my backchannel chatter about the news tips I receive or rants I won’t put on the blog and now a stream of webcomic headlines. Since each tweet will be prefaced with the #tdcw hash tag, you can also use the #tdcw hash tag to filter out everything except the webcomic items if you wish.
If you didn’t understand a word of that last paragraph, bless you and don’t worry about it. If you did, I hope you’ll enjoy a steadier stream of webcomic news.
