Quick note, I managed to fix the archives! Hooray! Also, I learned how to use shortcodes, so that was fun. I also added a small drop down in the comic navigation area to quickly jump from story to story. Hope that helps.
So recently, while researching more Aztec mythology to write into the Mudpuppy universe, I came across this:This is a ‘Xolo’ dog, or Mexican Hairless, although sources differ on what the original dog kept by the Aztecs was, as modern day Xolos are not short legged like Chihuahuas. The Aztecs kept them as pets and also frequently fattened them up to be eaten or sacrificed. They were also known to accompany Xolotl on forays to the Underworld.
Oh by the way, if you happen to be a Project Wonderful user yourself, my good friend Vas has put together some amazingly helpful PW tutorials on her website. These were invaluable. Check these out:
Thanks again, Vas.
Just a heads up, I’ve decided to join Project Wonderful. So far, I’ve put up a handful of ads on what I thought might be similar webcomics. I’m also in the process of working out putting up some ads (tastefully integrated, hopefully) onto blackmudpuppy.com. I’ve been at this for two years now, with no ads, but have not been able to gain the exposure necessary to rely on merchandise sales. I think I may have taken social media exposure and word of mouth as far as I can right now. So that’s basically why I’m doing it. I set up the first batch of ads this weekend, on superredundant.com, sluggy.com and a few others. And holy balls, Google Analytics has never been more riveting. About 50K eyeballs saw the add and about 60 people clicked over. Of those, most of them stayed to read through the bulk of the archives. If you’re one of those new people, HELLO! THANK YOU FOR READING MY SILLY COMIC. Please tell your friends! Or if, like me, you live in an Arctic research station, tell your imaginary friends!
