The Blog Feeds and News blog is now in stasis

This blog along with several others will be placed in stasis until further notice. It is unfortunate that this needs to be done, but is necessary due to a lack of time and contributors.

Any future entries that would have been posted in this blog will be now be posted in the NWSFS Science And Science Fiction News Blog. The sidebar links and RSS feeds will be kept intact for now.

If you would like to contribute to this blog, then please drop us a line at NWSFSNews at GMail dot com. Membership in NWSFS is not a requirement, though living in the Pacfic NW or Cascadia region is. There are just a few simple guidelines to follow.

Doing a little house cleaning and updating - 06/28/09

Just a short note that I went though and deleted a lot of old or inactive blogs from the RSS feeds on the left.

It looks like a lot of people are abandoning MySpace which is not really news due to all the problems with MySpace. To be honest I don't blame them especially when there are alternatives such as FaceBook, Twitter, LiveJournal, and Blogspot.

I should also state that some of the house cleaning also reflects my intent to focus this page more on the blogs of Pacific NW writers and artists. If you have any suggestions of blogs that should be added to the feed by all means please let me know.

Lastly I have to
once again put in a plug that I am looking for someone to help manage this page, so if you are interested please drop us a note.

Cheers ~ Jim Cox

Looking for contributors for this section

A lot of effort goes into keeping the NWSFS News Blogs on Blogspot going, and we could really use some in help keeping up with all the news.

NWSFS News is currently looking for local fans or writers who are interested in participating in a news blog focused on the science fiction, fantasy, and horror fan and writing communities in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia). We specifically need help with the Blog Feeds and News, Science Fiction News Feeds, and Science News sections of this blog.

One of the nice things about using Blogspot is that "author" rights can be given to a large number of people, so anyone with a GMail Address or a Google Account can participate in the growth of this blog. If you have are interested then drop me a line and we can discuss getting you on board.

Kelley Eskridge's "Dangerous Space" is a Nebula finalist

Congratulations to Kelley Eskridge who's collection "Dangerous Space" has been named a Nebula finalist. You can read more over at her blog!

Other blogs worth noting are Nicola Griffith "Ammonite's sweet sixteen", Holly Cupala's "Thinking of applying for the SCBWI Work-In-Progress Grant?" and Yasmine Galenorn's Blog Talk Radio Show Podcast

Just an FYI about this page. If you do a quick scan of the blog feeds in the sidebar you will note that many of them have been inactive for some time. Because of this I am going to do a little house cleaning and clear out many of them. Also, I want to focus this blog more towards local authors. If there is a blog feed you feel should not be deleted, let me know now by leaving a comment.

My plan is to post to this page more often, but until I can find another contributor to scan the blogsphere I will only be able to post no more than once or twice a week. ~ Jim
