Good News/Bad News : CCQ Bought by NEWSARAMA
Hey guys, sorry I’ve been MIA for the last few days but it’s been a mixture of personal issues as well as the news I’m about to speak about here regarding the future of the site. As you may have guessed by the giant logo at the beginning of this post as well as the fact that it’s in the title, Comics Con Queso will be heading in a new direction under the banner of one of the premier comic websites on the net, NEWSARAMA.COM.
Apparently, for some reason I can’t fathom, someone over there likes what they’ve seen thus far with my writing and decided that we would be a great fit over on their site, and I’m not going to turn down a steady paycheck to write for an established site just to feed my own ego and operate with a level of autonomy. This way I can get my content to a larger audience without having to pay for the bandwidth or advertising myself. This is really a win/win situation.
I’ve been told that there were many reasons for the buyout of Comics Con Queso, not the least of which is our forum, with four semi-regular posters, that’s double what Newsarama gets in any given month, so it’s obvious why they would want to get those people on board (no pun intended).
So basically what will happen is that this blog will act as an archive, a testament to what I’ve done thus far while the blog will be mixed into the Newsarama weekly schedule, with a week’s worth of content being shoved into a single entry and posted all at once, (probably on a Saturday if what I’ve been told is correct.)
I hope you’ll follow me over there, as I have greatly enjoyed putting this little blog together. Of course my weekly reviews will likely disappear, as they already have a team doing that and I don’t want to step on their toes. But I don’t think I’ll have a problem at all coming up with decent content now that someone is paying me to do so.
Thank you all for your support, and god bless you all.
P.S. If you honestly thought this was real, maybe I do deserve to be getting paid to write elsewhere. As this was all a prank. Your weekly reviews will be online tomorrow. Peace out!
