After months of procrastination interrupted by brief bouts of hard work, CrimeSpot.net is finally here. This site will round up crime and mystery fiction blogs from all over the Internet and summarize them in an easy-to-read format.
The idea for this site was born from two impulses: the desire to waste less time checking sites that hadn't changed, coupled with the desire to find cool new sites I'd never heard of. A newsreader would have solved the first problem, but not the second. So I created CrimeSpot.net as a sort of public, on-line newsreader that gathers information from the four corners of Mysterydom.
I'm going to use this SPOTTED blog to let you know about links that won't show up in the index, whether it's a new web 'zine, an interview or article, or whatever else I can think of.
If you have a blog that would be at home here, or if you know someone who does, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll look into adding them to the index. In the meantime, please enjoy the fruits of my labor.
