Unshelved comic strip for 7/8/2008

More love for Twitter

These days I do almost all my personal blogging via Twitter. I find 140 characters is the perfect length to get my pithy little thoughts in order. It's also a nice mechanism to solicit feedback from fans and friends without going the full message board/blog comment route, and I often try out strip punchlines and make announcements long before they hit the main Unshelved site. So if you enjoy my sense of humor and wish to monitor my stream of conciousness (warning: occasionally R-rated), follow me. And if not, good for you for having more of a life than I.


Time was, I would blog every time we hit a milestone in our inexorable climb to world domination. Then Gene convinced me to at least put on a facade of being humble. But I thought it was worth mentioning that our email subscriber list just passed 25,000. The kids these days, they're reading all their blogs and comic strips via RSS newsreaders such as bloglines or, my favorite, Google Reader, and we've watched our email numbers slow as our RSS numbers have jetted on ahead (have you switched? Please be kind and unsubscribe). And a stubborn minority use the old-fashioned method of coming directly to our home page. We're not picky. Whatever works for you. We're just glad you keep coming back, day after day, year after year.
