First Real Post on the new Blog

Alright so I didn't quite make a website, but it turns out I don't know a thing about web design. So Here I am sort of being a traitor if you want to call it that.

This site just has a better flow to it, and as so I'm going to be moving all my focus to this one, I know that I was starting to get a bit of a following over at the blogspot address, but hopefully they will be able to figure out the link I left them there to get them over here.

Today has been a crazy day, I feel like I'd done a million and one things. Sadly however I did fail to get any job applications out so I'll have to work on that one in the near future. On the bright side though I think I've been able to refine my focus, with the help of another not so employed any more friend and colleague. I'd love to go into details but that would ruin all the fun.

I do regret the fact that I do not have a comic to post today, I guess I'll be focusing on that, reviews, and applications tomorrow.

Well I guess its off to bed with me, I know I'm lazy... and I'm sorry I can't power through more than a 13 hour-ish day.

Oh and by the way for the easy navigation just in case you get confused choose from the wonderful nav bar at the top of the page, you could press the categories if you wish but the nav bar makes it prettier ;)

Toiling away on stuff

So here I am day 2 of the not so employed. I have to say that there is the start of a feeling of panic. I think I might have some part time work, and if I do then I might be getting some more so that I can get some cash to keep myself afloat.

I am working on my comics, I think that I need to really sit down and just map out a couple of them so that I know where I'm going with them instead of trying to figure out what to do next as I'm sitting at the computer. I know that there has been a comment about changing up the format because the three panels are in the same place for the majority of the comics, and I think that I might be changing up that in a little while. I'm going to stick to it for a bit longer so that I really start breaking down the comic. Another thing that I'm going to need to do is start breaking down the elements of my comics, especially the characters so that they don't change appearance so much between comics.

I'm trying to figure out what games I should review, it is a very difficult decision because I want to talk about every game I own, but I know that doing so would flood my blog and no one would be able to tell heads or tails of this thing.

I might still try to push for getting some server space out there so that I can get my website up and move from this place, but we shall see, probably not right now but if I can get a part time gig then I might try for it.

Alright well I hate to rush off but I have a shower that is calling my name, and a sister to see. So until later when I either write a review or post a comic, PEACE OUT.

Slowly Making progress

Alright so I've got the idea for the next comic, but sadly I haven't been able to draw anything because I actually have work work. The truly sad thing is that my motivation is right at zero.

So after work today hopefully I'll get the comic done, but if I can get my website transition started then I think the comics might not come out as often, until the move is done. The only thing that's really holding me back is procuring a name that I'll actually be able to use for business purposes. Once I have that then its full steam ahead.

I was thinking of the following format...

3 Sections
- Comics
- Reviews
- News/Blogs

I'm thinking for the Comic section that there will be just your basic (first, previous,archive, next, latest).

For the Review section I was thinking of setting it up with two options. The platforms, with a sub directory of genre, as well as just genre.

News/Blogs will be in the blog format which I think makes sense.

Hopefully I can get my act together soon.

Lightbulb going off in head

So I'm really dumb, doing game reviews is not about only writing reviews on the latest and greatest game, but there's also the need to write about games that are out there that maybe people are thinking about getting used or online.

I think that after this week it has become increasingly clear that I'm going to have to move to a website to better organize all the stuff that I'm doing. The comics are hanging on right now because of all the links I added to give some navigation, but I really need to take the next step. So hopefully in the near future I'll be making the move. I will also be back logging all my blogs, comics, and reviews so that there is nothing lost by the move.

I'm hoping to make separate sections for comics and reviews, so that the goers of the site can find what they are looking for. I'm probably, no most definitely, going to have to rely on some of my friends to help me set up this site. I think I have a URL name that will work, but I'm not saying a thing because ultimately I'd like to start a real business, one that looks like GiantBomb making sweet twisted love to Penny Arcade.

Well I believe it is time for some dinner, I've got half the next comic done, so hopefully I'll be able to post it sometime tomorrow, amazingly enough I actually have work to do so it might take a bit longer.
