Up until recently I maintained the "news" page on Euro Crime fairly faithfully but it does take quite a lot of time. I have just been dabbling with setting up a page ("room") on FriendFeed to do the same thing. It's much quicker for me to update and it allows readers to comment in that room on the articles. Another difference is that the articles won't particularly be listed in date order. You don't need to be a member of FriendFeed to view the links, only if you want to comment. (Joining is not onerous.)
Maxine at Petrona has set up a Crime and Mystery Room in FriendFeed which has proven popular and addictive.
So please have a look at the options and let me know in the comments which is preferable, or whether it's even needed at all...
