I mean the kind about things you’re actually interested in. In my case (which may also be your case considering you’re reading my blog), it would be new books to read, what’s going on in the writing/publishing world, and of course all things sci-fi (books, tv shows, movies, etc.). How do you stay “in the know” regarding what’s going on in the world around you?
I ask because I’m looking for new sites to bookmark, to keep me up-to-date on a daily basis with things I deem relevant.
Two sites I follow for sci-fi articles are Blastr and io9. For instance, thanks to Blastr, I found out that Kristen Stewart turned down the role of Lois Lane in the Superman reboot (wtf is she thinking?!?). On io9, I read about the awesome new sci-fi(ish) shows that might debut this fall on network tv (I am most excited about the adaptation of Stephen King’s “the Dark Tower”). Annnnnd I found out via entertainment weekly that Warner Bros Studio is remaking King’s “The Stand” (I literally LOLd when I read #10, M-O-O-N)!
As for new book releases, and info on the writing/publishing front, I follow a TON of different blogs that usually keep me in the loop. Some of my favorite blogs on writing are linked on the sidebar on the right, feel free to check them out (if you’re not already following them). There’s also Goodreads for book reviews, but I have so many books on my TBR list already that I really don’t need to go looking for more at the moment!!! ;-)
So I’m asking you, readers – where do you get your news from? Do you have sites you check daily (or more often?) for scoopage? Can you recommend some sites I should check out? Let me know in the comments section. Have a great weekend!
