Check Me Out, I'm Awesome!

So I'm probably one of the last people to jump in on this whole "blog" craze. Which is ironic, because the reason I didn't get a blog in the first place was because by the time I had heard about it I figured that all of the "cool people" were already blogging and doing a fine job, so why should I crash the party with what would obviously be seen as a "pay attention to me!" ploy? (I don't know where the tendency in me to demand to be the newest and bestest and most specialest in whatever I do came from. Or the silly thought that I have to be a "pioneer" because that way there isn't anyone else to compare me to, so I can't fuck up. It's all very counterproductive.) But now I suppose that blogs have become more of a "tool" than a "fad", since all of the marketing magazines I've been reading are offering tips on "how-to-create-a-business-blog-because-it-will-be-oh-so-useful-to-you-and-
make-you-money." Wait...

So, anyway, I really decided to create a blog to keep people updated on my various art and cartooning projects. There are a few people out there (whom I have never met) who think that my comic strip is pretty good and worth tracking me down for. In my infinite subconscious attempts to not get noticed by anyone, I neglected to post a link to my email address on my comic strip website. Which means that someone had to take the time to figure out how to find me. I don't know how easy this really was, but it impressed me a lot. And I thought that if there were a few people who actually did track me down, there must be a few more out there who like my stuff, but haven't tried to track me down because it's too complicated. (There is no shame in this, it's human nature. I do it too.) So now there's a place you can come to find out why I haven't been updating, what's been going on in my life, and my thoughts about stuff (comics, art, politics, food, etc.)

But this is just an introductory post. I want to write a very Girl In Black-centric post, but first I need to go get something to drink and maybe even eat. I'll be back...
