Since we’ve started offering sign ups for our monthly newsletter, the response has been very supportive as hundreds signed up with more joining every day.
I have been having conversations with not only those who support the move to downloadable PDFs but with those who aren’t too keen on the idea. After a few weeks of some back and forth with a group of people, I have decided to make a few changes that will hopefully make everyone happy.
First, I want to make it perfectly clear why I originally went down the path of downloading PDFs for the comics. It was two major things one of which was the extreme demands on my time that has prevented me from keeping a reliable update schedule this year. The second was being able to send a more focused message to people who actually wanted to hear it.
However, since that time I’ve had some people ask why I can’t just offer both solutions. At first I was hesitant because, like I mentioned above, I can’t reliably update the comic on a set schedule right now. I didn’t want people to waste their time coming to site only to find that yet another day has gone by without an update leading to people not reading all together. It may not seem like a big deal, but a lot of times you can lose someone just by not updating as often as they feel you should be.
Most of the readers I talked to told me they would felt it would be ok to have unpredictable updating since I’ve offered the newsletter signups. The reasoning was that people can still wait for the monthly newsletter to remind them to check the site and then read it easily on the site itself.
It seemed like a solid idea to me so we’ll give it a shot. Things have moved around a little bit but the idea is that now you have more choices than ever to get your Deadlys™ comic fix.
The Deadlys™ comic can be read at: http://www.thedeadlys.com/comics/deadlys-comic/
The TVMS comic can be read at: http://www.thedeadlys.com/comics/tvms/
The Deadlys™ comic PDFs will still be available but now they’re at: http://www.thedeadlys.com/downloads/the-deadlys/
So, there you go. Don’t let it be said that I don’t take feedback I receive seriously. Now hopefully everyone will be able to enjoy The Deadlys™ in the way that they choose. Just remember, if you’re reading it on the site, you may go a week without an update or not. It will be pretty random depending on my schedule.
As always, I appreciate your feedback and support. Thanks for reading.
