My new website is now up and running. It is called ‘We Blog Cartoons‘.
The basic idea is that it consists of cartoons that can be freely posted on people’s blogs by cutting and pasting some code (or by more technical means if people want to). The cartoons contained therein will be my non church-related stuff that will hopefully appeal to a wide audience.
We Blog Cartoons will not in any way take over from this site. Any new material that I post there will also be mentioned here on the Cartoon Blog in the same way that I post all new CartoonChurch.com material here too.
I have posted a couple of cartoons (well, 6) up to get things going. I’ll be posting some new material, but also some of my older scribbles which have appeared here or elsewhere. It won’t be a daily blog like this one I don’t think, but I plan to keep a reasonably steady stream of new cartoons appearing. (There again I also planned on keeping my room tidy.)
So, why another site? Well, in order to make a living from doing drawings I need to get my work more widely seen, and this seemed to be a good way to go about it. The revenue from the adverts wil hopefully help a little bit too.
As you will observe I’m allowing people to ‘hotlink’ the images, something which I have discouraged on this site. ‘Will that work?’, I hear you ask. Well, I hope so, but I will have to wait and see how things go. The bandwidth allowance for We Blog Cartoons is many times higher than this one, so I’ll just have to see what happens. I’ve no idea how popular it will become, but one can but hope.
Please do go and try it out and put a cartoon on your site if you have one. Anything you can do to spread the word would be most highly appreciated. Thank you!
