The kind of problem you want to have.

First of all, I'm sorry that I haven't posted here in so long.

 

There are two reasons for the lack of posting. One is that I've learned that
if I really want to get the word out about something, posting it here
doesn't work nearly as well as posting it as a postscript at the
bottom of a comic. The other reason is that I’ve been making more of an effort to
turn any funny ideas I have into comics, where in the past there were
some ideas where I just went "eh" and posted them here or to Twitter.

Now that my customary "apology from nowhere" is out of the way, I can
get on the real reason for this post. As you may be aware, some of
my comics are now running on Cracked.com. This has caused some
confusion as to which of my comics are new and which are reruns.  I
figured I'd just publicly state my posting schedule so everyone will
know what's going on.

I create two comics a week.

One goes to print papers. It can’t legally be posted online for thirty
days, so it gets scheduled for posting on a Sunday five weeks after I sent it to the papers.

Every Sunday and Wednesday I post to my site, but Cracked.com now gets
first shot at all the comics. They are not going to run all of them.
(In theory they could, but I really don't see that happening). Anyway,
I send Cracked.com a comic every Sunday and Wednesday. (on Sundays, it's
the comic that ran in the papers a month ago)

A week after I've sent a comic to Cracked.com, it becomes available for me
to post on my site, which I do.

Hopefully my posting schedule makes sense to you now. If it does,
please explain it to me, 'cause it confuses the he'll out of me every
time I post a comic.

I'm going to say No, it does not make sense. But who cares as long as they all end up here eventually. That's the theory, at least. Just don't let us miss any.

Wow are the commenters mean on Cracked.com! I thought the grammar-nazi's on your site could be cruel but remind me never to read the Cracked comments again.

I hope cracked.com is paying you a lot of money.

So you mean by the time the comic gets here, it's actually stale bread? Damn that sucks....

July 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterXenonym

What? ? You sold out to Cracked.com ? Are you on crack? Why you whore !!!
I hope it pays off well for you.

Cracked is where I actually heard about Basic Instructions, Scott! Gained you a delighted reader.

Sadly, I notice your comics on Cracked have been getting less than favorable reviews by the oh so professional commentators of the Cracked audience. I enjoy your comics but I can honestly say that you could be going with a lot better ones at Cracked. That audience is a tough crowd.

I don't know if you're the one picking which strips go on there or not, but toss them some of the golden ones. I personally suggest "How to Develop a Personal Alternative to Waving," "How to Handle "Trick-or-Treaters" or even better, "How to Backpedal."

Regardless! Want to let you know I love the strip, glad you're getting in papers!

Excuse my ignorance but, how have you faired in getting your stuff published in newspapers? Your comics are like two orders of magnitude better then what I normally see in the Funnies. Is there anyway we can help, like by telling our local newspapers to run with your comics?

Some of those comments on cracked are horrible. Stay positive and don't let them bug you :)

My thought immediately before I clicked the news link was, "I haven't checked the news page in a while; I always forget it exists". This wasn't a problem with one of the older versions of the site, where the new comic was posted on the main page and all the news posts were beneath it, and one had to click to view the comments. I actually preferred that style, as when there was news I would read it since I instinctively scroll down once I read the comic.

Anywho, I don't think I've commented before, but I enjoy the comics, Scott (especially the ones about physics!) Keep up the great work!
