So hey, long time no do anything. Most people have already noticed I’m sure but we’ve got a new logo and archive nav buttons. I’m slowly but surely updating bits of the site, but I’ve wanted a new logo for some time now and am rather pleased with how draft 32c finally came out so after three days of that thing changing it settled and there we are. Leave any typical praise or “oh my God it burns my eyes!” comments in the shoutbox or HP Discussion thread Zeph titled “Holy Crap!” I’ve also updated several things in the Cafépress shop with the new logo, so check that out too. There should be some new products and hopefully commission information on the actual Shop page soon, as well as the long-awaited Guide update and bringing the comic commentary template up to par with the news box…. but one thing at a time.
Site traffic is down to the lowest it’s been in a year, and I realize my udpates haven’t been awesomely plentiful lately, but it makes me a little sad all the same. Thankfully, I’m planning a bit of promoting.
First of all, I’m slowly nabbing ad space on Buzz, which is down at the moment, but that’s fine as they wouldn’t let anyone buy ad space for the downtime anyway. Guess I should have seen that coming. That said, no voting, or vote incentives, until August 8th or whatever it says when you try to vote. Yes, I know the big vote button up top is gone. It’s not Christmas anymore. The gingerbread army thing doesn’t really apply, and the top space needed some clearing anyway.
Second, KUMORICON. I’ve been wanting to hit this thing for years, and it sounds like me and LM are finally going to do it. Misery loves company, and crowds leave me worried I’ll be loving company a lot, but not the point! One must attend a convention before one can participate in one, and if all goes well maybe next year HP can have a happy booth. I hope to get me and LM decked out in random HP attire for a little blatantly obvious free advertising, as well as make us easy to spot. Sexy pictures would likely go up if that plan sees fruitition.
And so ends the news for now. I got rid of the image thingy up top, hope nobody minds, but really you’d have to refresh for three days in half the browsers out there for it to update and tell you the date anyway. So just look once in a while, I guess. D:>
