We've talked about this on Facebook, and I think it would be a lot of fun. At the same time, I want to keep it simple, straight forward, and sustainable. So here's how we'll do it. Every Wednesday, I'm going to post a cartoon with no caption - a cartoon that will have appeared in newspapers just a day or two previously, but has yet to be seen on social media. On Thursday, we'll all vote on our favorite caption, and on Friday, I'll post the winning caption alongside mine as it appeared in newspapers. How does that sound? While there won't be prizes, we should have a great time with it. And as always, if you have an idea for making it better or more fun, I'm all ears - just lest me know. How about them apples?
First, thank you for coming here to read this. The motivation behind going from my previous website to this is really two-fold. We've got such an amazing group of people on social media, and it's a joy to share my work every day But there's been a number of issues that, in my mind, require having at least a solid back-up plan. A place to go if, for example, Facebook suffers a continuation or expansion of the current crop of hackers who go in and steal accounts. If something doesn't appear right, it probably isn't, and so now there'll be a place where we can interact and carry on without interference. The second reason is that my previous site, while very technically advanced and well set up by the company I paid to create it, was beyond my capacity to add things and change when I wanted. While this site will be simpler, it will have a great deal more in terms of features and things I can share with you. And as needs must, I can make changes, add fun pages, and interact with you more personally and fully. I will be sharing and writing a great deal more about the art, business, history, and all things cartooning, too. I'm hoping the comments section will be actively used. Your feedback is so important. Thank you again for being here, and I look forward to building this site into a fun place to hangout! So, for Heaven's sake, please dress appropriately.
