Happy Anniversary, Blog!
As has become a hallowed tradition here, I am posting this notice late. On May 27th, this blog celebrated two years of taking up space on the web!
Ah, it seems like just yesterday that my dear pal, the multi-talented John, suggested I start a blog as a way to establish my presence in cyberspace. I was a bit leery at first. I was a non-entity professionaly, and I was pretty computer illiterate. He told me not to worry: it was easy to get started, and plenty of other non-entities had blogs. He was right! It was easy to get started, and, professionally, at least, I was even a bigger unknown than I thought I was! In no time though, I smoothed out the more noticeable bugs, and soon this blog became the Cavalcade of Wimsey you all know and love. Or at least check out now and again. I remain cartooning's best-kept secret, though.
When I first began, I had grand notions of posting something new and exciting every day. What I failed to realize was that A) I don't experience things new and exciting that are worth writing about every day, and, B) I'm lazy, and working on this blog takes valuable time that I could be spending goofing off and reading blogs by people who post every day.
I have scaled down my thinking since, and I now try to post at least once a week, although now and again I manage to squeeze out a few more. Quality over Quantity. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
To celebrate the anniversary of this blog, I have a special treat: Over the next few days, I will re-run some of my "classic" posts from the past. For those of you new to this site, it will give you a taste of what this blog is like. For you regular readers, it will give you an excuse to not bother checking out this site for a spell. (PLEASE NOTE: In the grand tradition of this blog, I may not actually follow through on my promise, so don't be too surprised if you don't see any "Blog Classics".)
Seriously, though, doing this blog has been a blast, and I really appreciate all the kind, and sometimes not-so-kind, comments from all of you. As long as you keep reading, I'll keep writing and drawing.
For at least two more years.
