It's times like these where I'm actually glad that my work isn't popular. Don't get me wrong: I have a solid, core audience for which I'm totally thankful for .... but I don't feel like busting out the Zaphod comics right now (although maybe I should round it out to an even 30 strips before I officially break from it).
Not having a huge audience and not having high overhead costs (website maintenance and whatnot) means that all of this can continue to be hobby that it is. Of course, this is not to say that I don't have higher aspirations for any of my work, but I guess it's good to know that there's no pressure, right?
As I'm working on rehashing what it means to be creative online, one thing that I'm sure of is that the two most important days of the week are not, in fact, Saturday and Sunday but Monday and Wednesday.
Monday is critical because it sets the tone for your week. They say that first impressions are the most important and Monday's have a hell of a job of keeping up to par. Wednesday's are even more critical because just as you're ready to bust out the handgun to take any early holiday, Wednesday can come along and be the crucial savior to get you through the rest of the week.
Here's my thought: you're busy enough every day of the week and, hopefully, you have enough of a personal life to be involved with things that actually matter on the weekend. I want horbawrong.com to be the pit-stop in the long, dreary haul that is your work week. Every Monday and Wednesday on horbawrong.com should hold the promise of distraction, entertainment, enlightenment, and hope.
Pardon the cheese, but lets leave the horrible and the bad for Tuesday's, Thursday's, and Friday's. Monday and Wednesday are hereby designated Hobawrong Days.
.... starting next week. See, we're at the tail end of issue 2 of Explorers of the Unknown, and I thought I'd wrap it up over the last few days of the week.
Stay tuned ....
