Getting Started: Put That Blogroll to Work!

If you're reading this, then chances are good that you're already reading others who are--at the least--sympathetic to we at #PulpRev and what we stand for. Be you an artist, writer, designer, or just another fan it's a good idea to turn your blogroll into a well-curated feed of information that you can readily resort to on a day-to-day basis.

That means finding friendly folks and putting them into the Blogroll. At this point, a lot of those people are working writers and publishers with some bloggers and podcasters mixed in: Razorfist, Brian Niemeier, Jon del Arroz, Declann Finn, Vox Day, John C. Wright, Geek Gab (especially On The Books), Jim Fear, and all of us here (and that's just what I recall off the top of my head).

I only post here once a week. I post every day at my main blog. It's going to be something similar for other contributors here, so even if there's a post here daily--which is a good thing in its own right--you are best served by going to the sites of the people you like most, or find most useful, and throwing them into your Blogroll so that you get notifications as soon as posts come up.

In addition to seeing our newest offerings as soon as they go live, they remind you to look into our archives. Maybe we already hit upon some question or other curiosity of yours, and in our past postings we can satisfy that interest you have. Curious about if you should read that dog-eared copy of The Moon is a Harsh Mistress? One of us, or our friends, has you covered. Want a take on Gundam Unicorn that isn't the usual weeb bullshit? We've got you. Want some interesting opinions on unusual writing prompts? Stick around; it'll come up again soon enough.

And having all of that in your Blogroll, where you--and no one else--decides whom to follow (nevermind why), is the best approach to keeping track of all of these fascinating and interesting people and groups you're now discovering and getting familiar with. It's right there, so make good use of this tool; spend less time aimlessly seeking info from the folks you like, and more time actually enjoying what you like.
