I have some big news for everyone today. Cooking Comically is moving to LINE Webtoon.
Webtoon is a very cool site that hosts a large collection and variety of other comics and cartoons and future Cooking Comically recipes will be hosted there as well. The only change for you guys is the location of the new recipes. The current recipes will be archived here and there will be no change to the content, I will still update every Thursday and the comics are still (and will always be) free. And with the move to Webtoons I’m gaining added functionality that I’ve wanted on my own site for years. Namely mobile viewing will be much easier, recipes will be easier to browse and I will FINALLY be able to directly reply to comments on the recipes.
4 Months ago Cooking Comically came back from a long hiatus. A lot of people, including myself sometimes, thought it might be dead. Today I am very happy to say that with the move to Webtoons combined with Patreon, Cooking Comically is now what I do for a living! It’s something that I’ve always daydreamed about but never really believed would be possible. It’s still sinking in.
I just want to thank everyone who has supported me and continues to support me throughout this crazy ride. Thank you for reading and cooking and emailing and commenting. Thank you for spreading the word and buying the book. Thank you for everything.
It only gets better from here.
Hello everyone. As you can see, Cooking Comically is back. In force.
Starting today there will be a new recipe every Thursday of every week.
I know a lot of you are wondering where I’ve been and I’m sure some of you assume that I published the book and am now swimming in money and/or the Caribbean. This is not what happened. There simply isn’t much money (none for me yet, in fact) in traditional publishing unless you sell a ton of books. And I didn’t. I had to get a full time job afterward to keep myself afloat and start paying off student loans. That paired with a multitude of very personal issues that I’m not willing to discuss with the internet at large, I ended up in a not-so-great place to produce anything of value. I lost heart for a while, but I never stopped thinking about Cooking Comically. I should not have gone completely dark. That was a mistake and I apologize.
Over the past year I worked through the things that had me in the mind-dumpster, dug a little ways out of my hole, and am now in a good place to resume the shenanigans and give Cooking Comically the attention I’ve always wanted to.
I would like to thank everyone who, over the past year, has sent kind messages of support. You’ve asked how I was, where I was, if I was ok, hoping that I would return, etc. Even if I didn’t respond, it really helped. I promise.
Lastly, but also importantly, you’ll notice I’m now running a Patreon campaign. This is my bid to make Cooking Comically something that can sustain itself and maybe even me. I encourage you to check it out and consider supporting me. It would mean a lot and there might even be things in for you that you’d like.
So. I’m back. Enjoy the show.
