First off, thanks for all the votes, (vote link) we got the comic into the top 10, which is amazing since the guys who usually dominate that position offer a post incentive with every comic that goes up, usually nudie pics of their female characters. Especially Spying with Lana, which you should check out if you’re not at work and enjoy well drawn naked people.

I saw some other webcomicers on twitter post some year over year stats, so I thought I’d do the same. I’ve got roughly 5X the traffic since this time last year, so thanks for sticking around everyone. Still, a year ago the comic was only a few months old so while my current traffic level isn’t bad for a relatively young comic, it’s not something I’m going to be making a living off any time soon. So my goal for this year is to get another 5x increase in traffic. I don’t know how realistic that is, but I really would like to escape the cube farm and do this for a living, which of course means more comics each week, so at some point I’ll probably add some ad banners to the page (I know, ads suck but I won’t allow any annoying flash ads or any epilepsy inducing gifs) and that’s not going to pay my mortgage, but at some point my host will probably say “Hey I know we said ‘unlimited’ bandwidth, but… here’s a bill anyway” so the ads might defray that cost and maybe even pay for some advertising of my own.

I don’t have a donate button or any other source of income off the page yet, except for a few T-shirt sales… I should really link the store at some point… but if you enjoy the comic and want to help out, for now the best thing you can do is share it with your friends, facebook, twitter, whatever, and hopefully people will find it and decide to stick around.
