So, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been invited to guest blog by Xaviar, and now that the time draws nigh, it occurred to me that I had better figure out how the Comixpedia blog-thing actually works.Ã‚ Ã‚ So far, so good.Ã‚ Anyway, in order to make this entry more than simply an example of my own rambling, interweb ineptitude, I will instead, make an announcement regarding my series:

Thanks to all the guest bloggers this summer. I'm still working on rebooting Comixpedia for the fall so posting by me may be light this week. If you guest blogged this summer feel free to post this week if you're interested. Thanks!

Sparkneedle archives are now free (formerly only available to Girlamatic subscribers).
Digital Strips looks at the rotating cast of artists on the webcomic Pet Professional. Are there really four artists on that strip now? Wow...
It's been one year since the founding of Blank Label Comics.
New Peter Bagge webcomic on the "war on drugs" at Reason magazine. Cranky middle-age libertarian goodness!
Kris Straub is working on a second Starslip Crisis book and his webcomic has just hit the one year mark as well.
Fleen checks into Owen Dunne's My New Mommy webcomic. It's ending. And Fleen thinks Dunne's website navigation is confusing. Most of what Dunne has done is pretty hilarious IMO.
Tom Spurgeon rounds up reports on the recent BookExpo America event in Washington DC.
Gluemeat celebrates various Canadian holidays. I wish we had Muffin Day in the states too...
The Bone website has been redone and now features a blog from creator Jeff Smith.

OK, there are going to be people out there who are going to say, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hey, Barb Ã¢â‚¬â€œ suck it up and stop whiningÃ¢â‚¬Â, but this is my space so deal with it. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had a few days to think about this since I originally wrote it, so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve done a small amount of revising. I hope now to have it sound more like Arthur DentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s speaking about Earth being Ã¢â‚¬Å“mostly harmlessÃ¢â‚¬Â.
We (Fragile Gravity, that is) got deleted from the Wikipedia at the end of April for being Ã¢â‚¬Å“non-notableÃ¢â‚¬Â. The reasons given were that we were 1) way low on the Alexa rankings 2) had minimal LJ and forum activity, and 3) were self-published. There were also some growlings about how we have a store link on our site, but that one I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take seriously; if that were a serious consideration for removal, there would be no webcomics in Wikipedia at all. :) The Wikipedia folks have guidelines and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s their party Ã¢â‚¬â€œ fine and dandy. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not the first webcomic theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve removed and we wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be the last; however, hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s my personal takes on those choices.

Maybe some of these have already been noted, but in that case here they come again.
The Pulse has an interview with last years Eisner Digital comic award winner Brian Fies about his, now print, comic Mom's Cancer. The Pulse also throws Comixpedia editor Al Schroeder's Mindmistress some love in the "Intro to Webcomics" feature.

Jon Rosenberg quits last remnants of a non-webcomics job to do Goats fulltime.
Ryan North finally reveals that he quit his day job an entire year ago...
I'm actually curious as to how many people make their living solely for a webcomic-based enterprise at this point. It's getting to be more than I can count on my fingers.

I haven't paid a lot of attention to this previously but the next "world-wide SketchCrawl" is scheduled for April 22nd. If you want to participate it sounds like there's more info on their forums. (Let Comixpedia know what it's all about if anyone does get involved.)
The latest Digital Strips podcast is an interview with Joey Manley who is behind sites such as Modern Tales, Webcomics Nation, GirlAMatic, Graphic Smash, Talk About Comics and Serializer.net. (I haven't listened to it yet though)
While I know there are some problems with the current top sites script at the Comixpedia portal (and once I get Comixpedia.com and Comixpedia.org "right" I'll turn back to reinvigorating that portion of Comixpedia-land) I just wanted to point out that Clan of the Cats (Library Entry) has been #1 on it the entire time. If you haven't before, go check out Jamie's comic. It's got an epic storyline with love, betrayal and a back-drop of pagan magik.
