Today marks my debut as the Manga Examiner with the Boston edition of Examiner.com. This will be a great experiment for both me and the Examiner, as it’s my first time working with their system and the Boston edition’s first stab at manga coverage (as far as I know).
Please take a look at my first article for the site, in which I discuss upcoming releases for May with a highlight on Boston-area critics. Writing for the Boston edition, I’ll be hoping to spotlight the local manga scene as much as possible, so any tips on news or events will be greatly appreciated! I’ll also be posting manga reviews, industry news, convention coverage, and anything else that seems timely.
Examiner.com offers several features for sharing and keeping up with new posts. First off, you can receive e-mail updates each time I make a new post by clicking the “Subscribe” button either on my main page or on any individual post. You can also share via the usual social networking avenues using the “Share This” button or the Twitter and Facebook buttons provided on each post. My e-mail address and Twitter username are both included in my bio as well. Also, please follow my RSS feed, add me as a “Favorite,” or “Sponsor” me (if you’re a business) by using the buttons on my profile page! Interested in becoming an Examiner in your region? Click here to apply, and don’t forget to say I sent you!
All comments and links are appreciated! I’m especially concerned with finding out just who my audience is at Examiner.com and how I can best address that community. So, check it out and let me know what you think!

Thanks, Johanna! I’m feeling… cautious. The buzz online is not very good regarding Examiner.com’s practices or quality. But I’m hopeful that I can make something worthwhile out of this.

I’m sure you will soon turn that rep around! :)
