Stranded on Earth for One Year


June 16th, 2014 – The odyssey begins

Well, it’s happened. Quietly, not unlike any other evening, but it has happened. We have reached the one-year mark of Stranded on Earth’s (SoE) existence! You know what? That’s pretty darn awesome. Yes, there were a few months I missed due to stuff and things…mainly August, then a hiatus from November to April, so that’s…ffffive months out of twelve in which I posted nothing at all, BUT AS A WEBCOMIC, Stranded on Earth has existed online for one year. My first post was June 16th, 2014 and now, as of June 17th, 2015, I have posted 30 comics¬†(a small crowd cheers faintly in the distance)!

That is a small milestone for me, as in the beginning, I told myself, quite arbitrarily,¬†that I would truly start promoting the webcomic on all available forms of social media when I had solidly posted 30 halfway decent comics. Up to now, I’ve only been using Facebook, mostly because my family and friends are the ones with whom I feel safe sharing the website.

Well, now that I’ve made my ‘quota’, it’s time to start gearing up for the next step, Tumblring and Twittering my way to greater visibility and a wider audience. Am I terrified of that? I believe this week’s comic will answer that question succinctly. In the meantime, while SoE is relatively safe in its cocoon of obscurity, I’m going to celebrate my first anniversary with a cookie and some Bloom County.

Thanks for sticking with me so far,
