I'm looking for a volunteer (or multiple someones) who is attending Comicon and would be willing to write a few posts that week (week of July 24th) for Comixpedia.
Webcomics have guest weeks - I guess this would be it's equivalent. If you're interested in being a Comixpedia guest blogger shoot me an email soon (xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com).

I read Reinder's post called "Albatrosses" this morning and man I bet that's a common issue (I know it's exactly the kinds of thoughts I've gone through when contemplating taking on another webcomic project).
On Friday, I had a longish talk with my brother about his creative endeavours and mine. He mentioned that whatever he planned to do, he'd find himself losing interest and not finishing it. What I found interesting was that the sort of projects he mentioned as examples were things like cleaning up and remixing old recordings of the various bands he was in, editing videos he had lying around unfinished, and other projects that involved a lot of digging through old stuff, cataloguing it, improving what already exists, trying to finish what didn't get done when it should have been. Hearing that was like having a mirror held up to me - it's exactly what I've been doing for over a year, and I'm heartily sick of it.

For our June issue we have an article on business strategies for webcomics by Sebastian Parsons that everyone - especially those working on making a living from their work - should check out.
The first in a series of articles, Sebastian Parsons explores the industry of Webcomics from the eyes of a businessman. A financial analyst for nearly ten years, Parsons shares his insight on an industry he curiously observes (rather than participates in).
