I had a pretty lofty goal of where I wanted it to be at this point. I started with the mindset that:

“if, at the one-year mark I miss my goal of x monthly visits – I’ll pull the plug.”

I’m afraid I can’t do that, Dave.

I’m still having fun with it (and gaining some traction) so I’m considering some changes:

  • More blogging on days that are not “new comic” days. I’ll try to be diligent about writing posts that I think might be of interest. Some will be shout-outs to other comics, others might be movie and TV reviews, graphics tips and techniques, etc. These fall under the “Dempsey Doodles” moniker of the site. This way, free time can come here to die Monday-Friday.
  • The schedule for new comics will increase to three days a week, starting in October 2010. I have flip-flopped on this before committing it in writing but the conventional wisdom in the webcomics community supports that more traffic will follow with more new strips. Looks like Monday/Wednesday/Friday.

Thanks for a first year that didn’t suck, I truly appreciate all the comments and retweets. Here’s to the next year of My Life In The Trenches. Heaven help us.
