I've been mega-super-ultra busy lately with illustrated guides and comics. This is a summary of my most recent stuff.
Ironically, I have no beard. This didn't stop me from encouraging everyone else to grow one.
After beards I moved onto cats, starting with skitters and then progressing to this guide:
Growing up, my family had a LOT of cats. 10+ of them (yeah, we were that family). I don't have a cat now, but I know how their conniving little minds work.
This illustrated guide did incredibly well. I launched it while in las vegas at pubcon, and it nearly took my server down while I was having dinner with some friends. I launched it on Wednesday, since then the guide has received almost 2 million page views in 4 days! I've received a ton of emails from people who enjoyed it, even one from a publishing firm from Los Angeles who wanted to know if I was interested in a book deal.
I'm trying to decide what to do with any future guides I create. They're working really well to get the word out about Mingle2, but they've also kind of become their own thing. I was considering either opening up an entire comics section on Mingle2, or just creating an entirely new website devoted exclusively to comics.
