BlogNationals: A Crapload of Bloggers, One Convenient URL

Suppose you’re curious about what the posse of bloggers have to say at RWA this year, but don’t remember who all is going, much less what the URLs are? Jane from DearAuthor kicked ass and took names and came up with Blog Nationals.com a blog that will scoop the RWA-related content from about 11 or so different sites and compile it in one convenient reading location.

This was all Jane’s idea, and I think it’s spiffy. I contributed two itty bitty things, but the rest is another example of how Jane can make a label maker weep with fear due to her l33t skillz of organization. Yay, Jane!

So once the conference is in full swing, check out the site. We’ll have other stuff going on at our own sites, obviously, but if you’ve got an itchy hankering for RWA Conference news, take a look. And if that itching continues, see a doctor.

ETA: Whoa! The site got hacked! How utterly lame. I’ll let you know when the site is active again.
ETA2: I think we’re back. And utterly badass as usual.

    Looks like both that site and Dear Author have been hacked, so you might want to temporarily take down the links.

    Yeah, I just tried to access Dear Author and found a black screen and some message abt Spy Turks.  Lovely.  I wondered if it was my computer, or something wrong with the website.

    This is great news—I know it will be a wonderful contribution to making the conference a more dynamic experience for members attending in person and via the Web. :)

    I think this is a great idea, and big props to Jane for the thought and the work involved.

    One suggestion, though—is there a way to show just the first part of each post and then a link to the rest, as both the SBTB and DA sites do?  Makes it easier for those who are scrolling/browsing, especially if lots of new posts have gone up since we last had time to look.

    Living just north of The City, I would normally LOVE to attend this convention.  However, real life romance beats out romance writing—my son is getting married that weekend.  So while you all are in San Francisco, I’ll be in a Marin County redwood grove, becoming (gasp!) a mother-in-law!!!!

    Congratulations on the new baby.  I certainly can make it into just an excerpt.

    Sonoma- there is nothing wrong with being a mother-in-law. Just as long as you don’t become a MOTHER-IN-LAW. (usually followed by the words “from hell”.)

    have fun at the wedding!!
