I’m in the process of cross-posting the pages of “To Catch A Goat” to other sites, namely Deviant Art and Fiction Press. I thought I might as well, considering they’re websites where people go to read and see things, and if I can attract new readers to the website by any means, why not? It’s that idea that “there’s no such thing as bad publicity,” but on a much more practical level. If I get new readers through either site, I get new readers, period.

I don’t intend to cross-post the comic pages to any other site, though. At this point, there are just too many for me to even consider it. I mean, really, I’m at well over 450 pages now, there’s just no — well, that isn’t entirely true. I’m sure it would be easy enough to do some bulk uploads on Deviant Art, I wouldn’t have to follow the same “page a day” routine that I have here. And as I was saying … readers are readers.

Sure, it’d be nice to have everyone come to my site to read the comic, I’d like to have all the traffic converge here, any and all comments located in one place … but I think it’s more realistic to assume that my website is still a ways off from achieving a level of self-sufficiency where people will gravitate here because of what’s here.

I mean, I did see a significant drop in traffic when I started uploading the comic and poetry for a couple weeks. *whistles tunelessly* I won’t do that again any time soon.

Oh, the next couple years will be interesting. I kind of wish I knew what to expect, so I could prepare myself for it. There are going to be a lot of changes in my life — things picking up, moving, rearranging themselves. I’m going to be so busy for a while, I have no idea how I’m going to juggle my creative projects.

By the way, if I drop off the face of the earth for a couple weeks in August, it isn’t because I’ve died or anything like that, it’s ’cause I’ll be on my honeymoon. :)
