Just a quick note, my friend Tom NyQuilDreamer is a little over half-way to goal on the Kickstarter for his next Nextus book.
Hey guys! So, I've been so busy the past couple years between custody of my kids, diabetes, moving to Ohio, repairs on the new house and most recently cancer and my new goal for 2016, that I've not felt like I could make the time for either keeping up with giving critiques like I used to or the Gutter Stars interview-features I used to do here... to be honest, lately I've been struggling to cut down on the amount of time I spend on DA, which is really hard for me because I love this community so much, but if I want to reach that goal for the year, I HAVE TO find a way to cut back on the amount of time I spend checking and responding to messages.
Having said that, I stumbled on this comic this morning called The New Yesterday, and while I haven't read more than a page or two of the story, I think the art is beautiful! At the same time however, Mackenzie has been on DA for a year and his average daily pageviews are still in the single digits! This guy's work is a real undiscovered treasure here on DA, so I thought I'd take a brief moment to share it with you fine folks!
In other news a few days ago I finished a book about marketing called Audience. I give the book a rating of "fair" -- long on anecdotes, short on actionable advice. If you're curious, I wrote a very short review on Facebook. I've got several other books to get through on the road to my goal of earning a living -- next on my list are the Complete Idiot's Guide to Guerrilla Marketing and Social Media Marketing For Dummies All-In-One. Wish me luck!
My next immediate goal is to get to $86/mo from my comedy by March 1st. While I feel like I'm a little behind on that goal because we're almost on Feb 1st and I'm still at $43/mo currently, someone gave me a generous $40 donation on PayPal just yesterday, which means that I actually hit that goal for the month of January! So I'm keeping at it (I would anyway), and let's see how we do in February!
Stay awesome, Hooligans!
