Not an End but a New Beginning

Posted: October 24, 2010 in Blogging, CCW Nation, CCW TV, Geek Culture, Opinion

I know everybody has noticed the serious lack of new posts around here lately. There are some very good reasons why.

Please allow me to explain:

Here’s the 1st PIECE of BIG NEWS:

This will be my last regular post here on the CCW Blog. I have enjoyed my time here immensely and have learned quite a lot from Elliott as to how this whole blogging thing works. I have also made a LOT of new friends here. The fact the you guys continue to comment here even in my absence means a lot to me and I greatly appreciate it.

One of the reasons this will be my last regular post here: I have been wanting to EXPAND THE SCOPE of the topics I write about. I also have a driving urge to create something COMPLETELY NEW from the ground up.

Here’s the 2nd PIECE of BIG NEWS:

As of tonight, you can find me over at my NEW BLOG. It’s a cool place that I will be co-running with someone you will all know. Every single one of my regular posts (Mellow Monday, Who’s Getting What, Capsule Reviews, Just Because, etc., etc.) will be up on the new blog– along with some BRAND NEW ones.

Please come on over to Inveterate Media Junkies at

Here’s the 3rd PIECE of BIG NEWS:

Besides starting this New Blog, I will also be recording a NEW WEEKLY PODCAST to complement it! Yes, you read that correctly. A WEEKLY PODCAST. This is something that I know a lot of you have been asking for and it is here, for better or worse!

Here’s the 4th PIECE of BIG NEWS:

On top of the WEEKLY PODCAST, we will also be holding a LIVE, INTERACTIVE BLOGCAST at least once a month!

We will be having all kinds of Contests, Giveaways and Special Guests on both the Inveterate Media Junkies Blog and the PODCAST.

The first contest will be announced on the blog in the next couple of days. Here’s a hint: If you are a fan of American Vampire and/or Scott Snyder you will be very interested in our upcoming prizes.

Here’s the 5th PIECE of BIG NEWS:

We all know what the big question is…”What about the videos?” CCW*TV videos are NOT going anywhere! Elliott and I will continue to record videos when time allows and schedules permit. In fact, we taped an HOURS WORTH of new stuff today.

Of course all of this comes with Elliott’s blessing. The CCW Nation will never know how much his friendship means to me. Elliott is a class act through and through. I truly believe things will only get better from here!

Think about it! The regular columns and posts you like. Lots of NEW STUFF. A HUGE INCREASE in the amount of commentary available and even more chances to interact with me, your other friends on the Blogs and some all new people too!

IT’S THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT TO THE 10TH POWER. So come on over, the water’s fine. After all, I am just one bookmark away, right?

For those wondering what will become of the CCW blog: Elliott is working on a few things and as soon as he/we work out all the details there will be another cool announcement.

I really hope that the regular CCW viewers here will give MY NEW BLOG a chance. I am very excited for the promise the future brings and I hope you will be too.

All are welcome there. I really hope to see you all in the comment boards:

We will be calling it IMJ for short. Get it? After all, I am (still) Jose.

All the Best,

    Big news indeed. Well I hope all things go well for you guys both. I love CCW for so many reasons. A great place to talk comics without rude elitist talking down to you (like you’d find at a comic store) and awesome links in every thread about new movies, shows, comics etc.

    I’ve enjoyed my time on this blog here as well. And I’m so happy I got to be apart of this small online community! πŸ™‚ Good Luck Elliot and Jose with your futures, and thanks for giving me something very special to check out every time I logged on to the internet!

    Well, I’m definately going to be checking out the new blog. But I’d like to say thank you, Jose, for your wit, insight, and good taste. You expanded my horizons in regard to comics and culture in a way I never thought about before. Congrats on this new step.

    I just start posting here here not to long ago, and now I have to move.

  14. No worries folks. The CCW*TV blog will keep going on, but I’m gonna let folks get comfy with Jose’s new blog before pushing new content here. We’ll still have Deemar’s Sunday Funnies and the CCW Poll of the Day/Week. I’m also going to introduce some new ideas and ways to let you guys express your opinions about comics and comics culture.

    So just hold on ladies and gents, as things are just gonna get bigger and better!
