A drive-by Saturday post to keep y’all updated on what is going on with the blagosphere of Eve Online:
EVE BLOG PACK
The Eve Blog Pack has been updated! Sadly, we bid adieu to three blogs – including my all-time favorite, Rifter Drifter. Luckily, Wensley is still active, now making the occasional podcast with Sard Caid on Caid’s Twitch.tv stream. Check them out!
However, where three go, three more follow – no shortage of candidates these days! However, I’ve decided to give preference to returning members of the Pack, and thus have added Rixx Javix’s Eveoganda and Helicity Boson’s….well, Helicity Boson….back to the Pack. Really great news to have them both back. In addition, we have one brand spanking new member of the Eve Blog Pack – The Nosy Gamer. Really quality posts over there – check them all out using the official Blog Pack feeds, available here.
A whopping nine new blogs have been added to the Eve Blog Roll (the master list of Eve Blogs). Actually 10, since The Nosy Gamer wasn’t on there for some ungodly reason. All posts going forward from these blogs will appear on the main page of Evebloggers.com, your main source for the Eve Blogosphere (and, coincidentally, where I turn when I’m looking for nominees for…)
I didn’t receive any new suggestions on what to call these Monthly blogging awards, so The Eebees it is. Either you guys don’t care about possibly getting a PLEX for doing what you normally do, or you think its some sort of scam since I’m a Goon these days. However, it’s not a scam, and the finalists for the two April awards have been chosen:
Blog Of The Month, April Nominees: Tiger Ears (by pjharvey), Eve Travel (by Mark726) and Mad Haberdashers (by Corelin)
Post Of The Month, April Nominees: Rundle Allnighter’s Blog Banter Entry, Susan Black’s ‘A Fairy Story’, and Azual Skoll’s ‘Risk’
As soon as Stan is back from his stag weekend and casts his ballot, we’ll be all set to announce winners. Congratulations to the nominees!
MY OTHER GIG
In case you haven’t given a gander to www.tacticalentertainment.tv, I’m their newest Eve Online writer. So far, I’ve written two articles and a guide:
Check out the articles and either leave feedback there or here, or hit me up on Twitter. Always looking for good feedback and differing points of view.
Ripard Teg over at Jester’s Trek has an amusing sidekick from time to time that he likes to call ‘Garth’. Really just an alter ego that goes on rants and the likes, Garth has inspired me to unleash the Wild Marcosaurus – the angry Irish Dinosaur of Voices from the Void fame. I don’t have a regular podcasting gig (and may not for some time, as several other projects are in the works), so when I just have to unleash some vitriol in a worthy (or unworthy, as the case may be) target’s direction, expect to see the trolololololosaur come out. First one is coming for you, Riverini.
And that about wraps it up. Been a busy day – check out the links and let me know what you think!
