Change is good. All things must change or die. (Except sharks. They haven’t needed to change for a looong time because, sharks.) So let’s talk changes today.
First, the blog. Doing the wacky titles based on whatever this week’s story update happens to be is cute, but if I want this to be a combination of “Story updates!” plus “News you can use!” plus maybe even “Personal stuff!” I shouldn’t adhere to that pattern. So, dropping that.
Second, the City of Angles website. It’s revamped slightly! A reader commented how he preferred a prominent, up-front notice of what’s new, rather than the heavy emphasis on the full archive of stories. So, I shifted that box to the left, and added some new newsy type information to it. I’ll be tinkering with this more as time goes on, no doubt.
Third, we’ve got new City of Angles artwork! It’s official art for Amanda Walker, and also some fanart by my sister for Grandma Scarlett. So awesome. There’s art for Ellie coming next week!
Fourthly, I’m not sure what to do with my tumblr, and I’d love your feedback on that. I’m new to tumblr, and I want to make sure what I’m doing is re-tumblable, if that’s a word, or at least useful for you guys. It could be a good way to virally spread my stories. Is doing a small excerpt followed by some links the right way to go? Should I just mirror the blogposts? What’s what from what? I am not good at computer. Halp.
Finally, oh by the way City of Angles //015: What Goes Around is now up. Took some time, so thanks for your patience. If you’d like to leave feedback on the story, you can do so at the bottom of the story itself; it’s got comments built right in, just like my blog.
Okay! I think that’s about everything. Oh — when you get some spare time this week, tune into Desert Bus for Hope. It’s a telethon where some sketch comedy guys are playing the world’s most boring videogame for as long as people donate to Child’s Play. Nice video summary here. Speaking as a child who was in and out of hospitals for years and years, this charity can really save a kid’s life (and sanity). Trust me on that. Thank you.
