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.

You should really put together a sitcom pitch or movie script.

I'm yet another reader who arrived via Cracked (just so you know that paid off) and I purchased both your books too.
Keep up the excellent work.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSimon

just for a change, I have not "just arrived from cracked.com". I learned about BI long ago, when Scott Adams mentioned it.

I now read you regularyl, I got two copies of your first book, will get a copy of the second one.

I am glad all this works out well for you!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterfrancesco

He Scott, congrats! Super!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterReader

Great stuff!! 50% more bald guy! BRING IT ON!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAndres Kievsky

This strip is one of the very few that continue to get better with time, instead of getting stale. You are a genius. Please keep it up!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJesse Barnum

Glad to hear it! Congratulations. :)

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMark

That is great news. I think this is all because you filtered out the grammar police.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFrank M

@Frank M:
The grammar police are still here, but Scott's doing a better job with not needing our assistance.

LOVE your site - long-time fan - congrats on giving us MORE! (yay)

Cool! I actually never really figured out the upload schedule, which is why I subscribed to the RSS. Neat to know you'll be updating more often.

But I hope that cutting back on your day job doesn't mean less jokes from that particular workplace!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFriendly Floyd

wonder if your video game skills will improve as well?


September 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterirrogical

that's a golf clap for you.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjames yeamans

Sweet mackerel, that's excellent news indeed!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKenny

Good sir, I love you.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKatherine

nice. I'm kinda new to Basic Instructions, but I really like it. 3 times a week is awesome.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjim

I believe the only reasonable response to this news is:


I would have put that in really huge text, but I don't know how!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterWilf

You really are living the dream. You are not just on your way up, you're already partly there! I am loving the journey!


September 13, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkarona

This bit of good news has taken the edge off an otherwise edgy day (my computer had to be reimaged...grumble...)

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDaisy

Ditto on "there's ads?" I've gotten so good at not noticing most advertising. If they are increasing your income, though, they have their purpose, and I have bought both your books, so not a total freeloader. Come to think of it, this should mean you'll have enough for the next one sooner. Looking forward to it.

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMP

YES!!!!! Yay!!!! Yay!!! Yay!!!!

September 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

You could also put ads in the rss feed version of the posts since some people (like me) use google reader.

that was the sound of my two cents.

I will learn.

September 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDario


I've been a BI fan for a couple years now, and I never miss a new strip. I'm on the RSS feed as well, and I always keep my eye out for the new one.

I wish you great success!

September 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

Congratulations, Scott! (and Missy, and Nameless Cat) I've been a fan of both BI and Cracked for years, so this feels kind of like watching two old friends get married. I'm glad it's working out, and I hope you'll both be very happy together.

September 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKate

Good for you, hopefully one day you will be able to do this full time.
