Hi everyone! I hope everyone’s having a fun Saturday!
I just wanted to come on here to address everyone. I’ve posted this on my tumblr and facebook fan page but I wanted to come on here and post this as well.
I want to truly thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for all of the warm comments and all of the support that you all have shown me. The site has only been online for 2 years but already I’ve spoken to so many kind people that found my work and told me how much they liked it and that really does mean a lot to me. I still remember the first year when I would just receive about 1 viewer each week with my website traffic but even with that I was still grateful. With the small audience that I had I was able to comment and respond and just chit-chat with them all. Even if they would never respond back I was still happy to know that at least they were silently reading the story because my stats showed that I had returning visitors.
Two years now passed and we are going on our third year and I’m receive more and more encouraging comments and such kind feedback that I’m unable to respond to them all but I do read each and ever one of them when I see the notification. With two deaths in the family, family reunion, three comic conventions, kickstarter rewards, volume 2 printing and homeschooling for my little ones, I’ve found myself extremely tired throughout the day but I could always go back and re-read over all the sweet comments that I received on here and on my site and it gives me a little more strength to keep moving forward with my story. I don’t want to use life events as an excuse for me being lacks with responding to all of my comments, I should make responding to comments an even more priority as I do to responding and answering all of the questions that I receive (as long as they aren’t spoilers to the story plot of course ^^;)
Just recently it has come to my attention that I might have upset or caused frustration because of my lack of response when it comes to all the wonderful comments. It wasn’t in my intentions at all to hurt anyone feelings when I wouldn’t respond. I felt like a thank you might have been too simple and a little cold. A lot of times I type a response and then erase it over and over worrying that it might sound to boring or simple or like I didn’t care.
I see now that maybe just saying thank you wouldn’t be such a bad idea. I will do my best to try to fit in responding to comments whenever I do my weekly updates. I do make sure to respond to questions asked since it’s a lot easier to give and answer to something then it is to come up with conversation for a comment.
So for everyone that has sent me a comment I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart because each one of your kind comments has given me strength to keep pressing on and I do want to ask for your forgiveness if I have hurt anyone because of my timidness when it came to responding to such kind compliments and comments.
I will do my best to be a better mother, wife, sister, daughter, comic creator and web mistress. I won’t give up, again thank you so much to all of you for being so kind and patient
