Welcome to 2009, everyone! And welcome to my new website!
This BEING a new website, I’m not sure that many people will be around to read this message … but I’m going to try to spread the news quickly. In any case, it doesn’t matter to me WHEN you read this little note, you still have my wish that the coming year is a good one for you, filled with challenges met and dreams fulfilled.
This site represents the promise of BOTH those things for me. A dream fulfilled because I’ve been thinking about starting a web comic for a number of years now … but a lack of technical savvy and the sheer force of inertia kept me from making it happen. Now, though, I’ve gotten the ball rolling … and there-in lies the challenge. Producing enough material for a five updates a week is no mean feat, particularly given how busy my schedule already is. But it’s really the only way to do it, if I’m going to be faithful to my vision.
On the plus side, I’ve got a lot of experience in both online and physical publishing. I’ve got some small bit of relative “fame” in some quarters of the geek-o-sphere, so that should help a little with getting some attention for the site.
On the negative side, this is VERY different from what I’ve done in the past … so it’s unclear how many people who like my past work will even be INTERESTED in this. Additionally, this site is going to be very different from other web comics … so it’s unclear how much of the web comics community will find what I’m doing interesting, or where I can go to find an audience that will.
Still, I am more pleased than I can clearly communicate that Story Time With Stan! is a reality. And, come what may, I’ll always be able to say that I gave it a shot!
Thank YOU for giving the site a shot. I hope you like what you see, and that you’ll stick around as, along with the new year of 2009, the site and the stories roll out.
