I mentioned a while back that I wanted to try starting up a meta fandom newsletter in the style of metafandom
Well, I've done it. It's called metanews
and I've spent most of the weekend trawling flists and circles and all sorts to fashion myself a large-ish pool from which to draw links from.
I'm gonna aim for an update every Monday, which means I'm going to try and stick to only current links, i.e. about a week old. That should limit the amount of trawling I have to do to a certain extent!
Anyway, as I've been compiling both my pool of meta-making places, and the actual meta links I'm going to post, I have come up against a number of problems and now I am going to speak about them, at you. Enjoy.( never gonna give you up... )
So 3 requests, dear flist/circle:
i. Any recs for meta writers/meta comms/fandom newsletters/anything vaguely fannish. Don't constrain yourself to journal sites only, I'm looking anywhere. If you want to tell me your own journal is open to being linked to, please do. But likewise don't be afraid my (nemonclature ) flist is now gonna become metanews' hunting grounds because it's NOT. metanews has its own flist
ii. Anyone willing to help me mod? Or give me newsletter-modding advice?
iii. Can anyone help me tracking the whole fandom fourth wall debate that's been going on this month? It seems to be a big thing going down, only it's all on tumblr. WHYYYYY. GOD WHYYYYYYYY?
