My new boyfriend ("new" we started dating in october 2009) is amazed that I'm "one of the front runners of your field" (been doing this since 2001 when you still had to explain to someone at a convention what a "webcomic" was. "no sir, it's free to read online. no sir, that doesn't mean it sucks.") but I've been doing this for 10 years and Obby can't believe how LITTLE I know about websites and hosting, considering I make my living at it.
So yeah, I had been using dreamweaver (paint by numbers of the website building variety) and just pressing enter to upload the comic. Now I'm moving to my own site and have to build it from scratch. Enter wordpress (or comicpress, I think...right? I was born confused). It's easy in comparison to learning how to code from scratch but I still pull my hair out. "I just want to put words next to a picture, how fucking hard is that?! fucking characters page! fuck! I hate everything!!!"
Obby, bless is computer addled heart, has already talked me down from the ledge and it's only my first real day of trying to figure this shit out. I haven't had someone here before who will pull me away from the window, pry the computer out of my hands, and work the kinks out of my back until I forget that I want to live in a cave until technology goes away.
Yes, so I've blatantly stolen all the cute little link buttons from my good friend Gina Biggs of http://www.redstring.strawberrycomics.c
uh, updates; yes... I'm going to be a bridesmaid (again, but I haven't done the cartoons about the first one in the woods with the bear. well, okay, there wasn't a bear, just very very fresh bear poop where I was supposed to stand with only a wad of flowers to protect me from "nature") ((I've had coffee, can you tell?)) so I'm going to be a bridesmaid in a month and we get to wear, I shit you not, honest to god, Green Bridesmaid dresses. This is so awesome you have no idea. This is the thing of legend, of stereotypes, of visa commercials! I get to wear a green bridesmaid dress! heh-ooh, I think I get to wear my flame boots with it. And it's knee length. This is going to be ten different ways of awesome.
alright, enough procrastinating. Back to picking together my website one match stick at a time.
