A good amount of work has been done this week – you may have noticed some of it around here in the form of subtle site changes. I’ve spent some time strategizing how this site should be used and whether or not I should build other sites for various purposes. I believe that right now, however, I need to focus on keeping this site not just good but great by keeping all of my various ideas under the MaxRiffner.com umbrella for now.
Just because it is easy to build other sites doesn’t mean I should, and I think that keeping everything under one site reflects value in the content of this site. Not only can you get a good dose of Max-created comics (including a full graphic novel), but also a selection of high quality Pinups, and hopefully some entertaining reading here in the Parlor.
Which brings up another point: the writing in the Parlor hasn’t been as good as I would like. Adding comments here was interesting, as the highest commenting would come from more personal posts, and I think I got somewhat addicted to the comments for awhile. When I would post anything professional, comments would drop to zero most times. Hence, not many professional posts to feed my comment addiction. By doing that, however, my audience hasn’t grown a whole heck of a lot either. I want to be writing more on comics, independent publishing, design, how the internet affects these subjects and the business of all four. There is going to be more of that. There will still be personal anecdotes, too. I value the audience that is here now. I think I now have something to offer in those other areas also.
So let me give a quick hit of all the subjects here in one post:
