Sorry I've been quiet on the news front. It's not something I do often. That, and work's been pretty busy lately.
So, it's nearing convention season. Here's the ones I'll be attending this year!
Biggest Little FurCon, May 3-5, Reno, NV (I'll be bowling nightly here, if you want to join.)
AnthroCon, July 5-7, Pittsburgh, PA
Megaplex, July 26-28, Orlando, FL
UnthroCon, August 30 - September 1, Salt Lake City, UT
If you're going, I hope to see you there!
I'm working hard to provide a steady stream of comics for you all. Currently, there should be no issues with the current post rate, though a hiccup may occur due to work, and also the above mentioned conventions.
I'm thinking about making some freebies, like bookmarks, postcards, and greeting cards, as well, but that has yet to be determined. Currently, with my work schedule, my free time allows me to keep up with the comic, and not much else, but I'll see what I can fit in!
Also, the forum has been up for a few weeks now. If you'd like to join in on the discussion, click this link:
I've restarted the forums! They can be reached via the menu up top.
Pardon the odd graphical glitches.
After careful consideration, I've decided to restart a forum for the comic. I figure that I've got enough readers that comment now to sustain one.
Due to Thanksgiving, the Sunday comic that would normally appear on 11/25 will be pushed up to 11/18. The schedule will resume on scheduled dates in December.
It's coming on November, and the chill is in the air. Snow has arrived in many parts of the country, and oddly, we've just had one of the worst natural disasters seen in nearly a decade! I'm not here to give a weather report, but I would like to ask you to donate to the American Red Cross. They have the logistics, supplies, and trained volunteers to assist those that have been affected. Perhaps there are furs that you know that have been.
Anyhow, I know that I've been rather quiet on the update front. I'm not as social a person as I'd like to be, so I do tend to look pretty low key.
I'm working on some designs for bookmarks, and also have drawn up a few images for icons to download on the website. I might do a couple t-shirt designs next year as well, but until then, I'm more than happy to make these icons and perhaps a few wallpapers as well when I get the chance. It's the least I can do for my readers. :)
Also of note, it's been three months since I started my ad experiment after letting my FA advertising expire, as well as my Project Wonderful. I've found that even without the advertising, my "usual" readers have grown in number at roughly the same pace as they did prior, so it's almost like those particular ads weren't really working, and I've had more luck gaining readers by posting the comics directly on FA, and DA. Is that a bad thing? I guess it would look it, but it's also a learning experience. It just means that I have make better ads!
That said, I'm happy to see as many readers as I do; on FA, on DA, and also the website. Given my work schedule and workload, it's been getting harder for me to keep ahead with the comic, but I press on, because all of you guys make it worth the effort!
Hugs for all!
I've decided to temporarily remove the forum. Thre's a couple reasons behind this:
1) There's not enough traffic to the forum to support having it right now.
2) I'm not happy with the forum software. It's not exactly like I wanted. There are other forum providers out there using different software.
I've found that I actually get more replies, and most of my reader interaction via Furaffinity and Twitter. I'll still be posting regular updates via Facebook and Google+ as well.
Megaplex is in 2 weeks, folks, and I'll be attending! I won't be selling anything, but I'm up for a freebie sketch or two. :)
So it's official, folks! I will be attending AC this year. I plan on eating at Fernando's cafe, meeting up with friends, doing a few sketches, maybe draw a comic or two, and in general, having a good time. How about you?
