Hey guys! Just a heads up to let you all know that Sad Sausage Dogs now has a Patreon account!
What does that mean?
Well, it means you have the power to help support this comic!
The long and short of it is that creating traditional comics can be pretty expensive – we’ve been doing this for nearly 2 years without any sort of monetary recompense or ads on the site. Unfortunately, our operating costs are getting a little high, and so we’re looking to our fans and readers for some help.
By becoming a patron, you will help us continue to tell this story the way we need to tell it. Simply choose a reward tier and commit to paying that monthly amount for however long you wish.
(And we’re looking for reward suggestions too! If there’s something you’d like to see, please drop us a line and let us know.)
Hey guys – so based on a number of comments we received about the last few pages (publicly and privately) we’ve gone ahead and opened a Redbubble storewhere you can buy some of those pages as prints and other goodies, along with additional Fox & Willow artwork.
Please check it out and let us know what you think and don’t hesitate to let us know if there’s something else you’d like to see!
In an effort to give our readers additional options, we’re happy to announce that we are now making page updates on Tapastic.
Now – we’re in the process of catching up to where we are on the website, but once we’ve got all the pages uploaded, we will be updating the Tapastic site with two pages a week every Friday.
The beauty of Tapastic is that there is an app – both for iDevices and Android – it formats the pages pretty nicely and if you create a Tapastic account and subscribe, you’ll be notified when the comic is updated.
A little site update here about our RSS feeds and email subscriptions.
I’m sure many of you are aware that Google will be discontinuing its Feed Reader as of July 1. This is a major bummer for a number of reasons, but particularly for readers of web comics who might not have time to go to all their favorites every day. So, for those of you who use a feed reader, you might want to look at an alternate like Feedly.
For a web-comic specific reader, I’ve heard Comic Rocket is pretty good – Fox & Willow does feed into it, so that might be a good alternative.
This brings me to the second part of this post, which is that I’ve changed our RSS feeds from Feedburner to Feedblitz.
So bear with me if you are a subscriber and you get duplicates for a day or so – hopefully not. >_<
I’m giving a mega shout-out to Phil over at Feedblitz for 1) having perfect directions set up and 2) helping me to troubleshoot when I had some issues. I think this is going to be a great product and I’m very appreciative at having such great response time.
We’re starting to get requests for banners for link exchanges, so we’re making some up – you’ll be able to find whatever we’ve got under the Extras page. We’d been holding back on doing any real advertising or exchanges until we had some actual content, but I think we’re hitting that point, so we’ll be setting up a Link page soon.
