Good news ... I hope.

Good news ... I hope.

Starting September 19th, I will be changing the posting schedule for Basic Instructions.  Instead of posting on Monday and Thursday (Really the night before, if you wanna get technical) I will be posting on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.


Yes, as the math implies, I am upping production of the strip to three a week. Between ad revenue (thanks for putting up with the ads, btw) book sales (thanks for buying books as well) and now my deal with Cracked.com, I’ve been able to cut back on my hours at ye olde day job, and I’m putting the time to use getting back to my original three-strip-a-week schedule.

So...this means we're going to get a reliable strip a week about how hard it is to do three strips a week, right?

Yes, I am messing with you.

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGlenn Fleishman

Woo-hoo! I can't wait!

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

Indeed it is good news, although I am a selfish reader who wants more instruction on how to live.

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatchstickman

You're living the dream, man. I'm envious.

Congrats man, that sounds like a nice position to be in. Enjoy the successes and plan ahead while you have the chance. If ever in doubt, ask a lawyer first, then a banker, then your fans, then your mother-in-law.

In response to this I whitelisted BI in adblockplus.

That's fantastic news, Scott.

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWarren

Does this mean you'll have time to drawn pants on cartoon Scott? :)

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDOlz

There's ads? (RSS FTW)

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEthan

I, for one, am happy to hear you can now afford pants.

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChap

Awesome man! We appreciate you!

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterbdabbs

Good to hear :) New reader here thanks to Cracked.com's first feature. I find your strips hit and miss - but the hits are amazing, and now with 3 columns that's an additional chance for a hit :)

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGraeme

Congrats! Fantastic news.

BTW Chalk me up as another now dedicated reader that came through Cracked. I've laughed my way through your entire back catalogue now, and this announcement is well timed!

Mullet boss might be a little upset by this turn of events. I look forward to the strip "How to tell your boss you want to work fewer hours because you have something better to do".


September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBDC

Excellent! The wife and I never miss your strip, mainly because of it's awesomeness.

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAdam H.

Very good news indeed! I'm looking forward to it!

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLenny

What's a Cracked.com?

September 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlan Hope
