Well, it’s the 1st of September and I have a new goal.
Every month TopWebComics resets and all your hard earned votes go back to zero. So, I decided to be serious about voting this month. To prove how serious I am, I’m going to try to update the voting incentive twice a week to spur everyone to vote for reMIND. Today’s voting incentive is a new wallpaper I made for anyone who donates. To be fair to the donators, I’m only showing a medium sized version when you vote along with a watermark.
My goal with the incentives this month is to try to get into the top 25 on TopWebComics. Getting ranked high on this list is better than any advertising because most people only click on what seems popular before wasting their time digging down a long list. When I got into the top 50 a month ago, I started seeing around 25 new visitors a day from TopWebComics. The only way they could have found me was by digging through the top-list because I wasn’t advertising at the time. I have to admit, I’ve clicked on all the top 50 webcomics before just to see why they got so many votes.
Anyway, I promise to make an effort to update incentives this month if you keep voting. So here we go.
Today’s incentive is a preview of my sweet new wallpaper.
Yesterday was the deadline for the reMIND pin-up contest and I’ve been overloaded with submissions! Thank you to everyone who sent something in. It’s a treat for me to show them all, not only because it’s fun for me to see everyone’s vision of my characters but also because it’s giving me a break. Last week I was able to get about twice as much work done on reMIND.
Although it’s not ideal, I’m going to keep posting pin-up’s until they are all online before I start posting Chapter 3. BUT, if you want to see the line drawing version of the first page then vote for reMIND at TopWebComics and you can see it there. Click the thumbnail below to goto the voting page.
Another good reason for the delay is… well, I still don’t have the first spread of Chapter 3 finished. I was spending all my time working on the last 6 pages of chapter 3 and forgot all about the need to finish the first one. I tend to work on many pages at the same time. The good thing is, once I start posting chapter 3, I’ll be able to post every Monday, without interruptions, all the way to the end of the chapter. This will also take us to the end of the first book.
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind with Kickstarter ending and collecting all the information from everyone. I’m still waiting for the money to clear and so I can have access to it. Most of the information has been collected from everyone now and only a handful of pledges had errors because their cards couldn’t get charged for some reason.
I’ll try to get back on track with articles and stuff once all the pin-ups are live. Thanks for all your patience and support so far. It’s been really fun seeing this grow at the rate it has.
Keep checking back each day for a new pin-up!
