If you are following this webcomic for some time, you probably must have noticed that I am not a blog person.
But I think that making a webcomic comes with making a blog about it. Or about life. Or anything. With a blog you know that I am a living person, not some art stealer or a robot throwing images around itself and I can chitchat with whole world about anything I want.
And that is the problem. The whole world (may be or may be not) listening.
Do you know the joke about a man who wanted to have a pub, but he desperately hated humans? (The czech people probably would know it thanks to Jára Cimrman.) I sometimes feel like him. Except that I don’t hate humans (I love my friends), I just avoid to share personal things with them on the internet.
I wasn’t like this all the time. I used to have a blog when I was a teenager. I wrote there a lot, shared a lot of my ideas and experiences, wrote about my daily routine. I didn’t tell about it to anyone I knew personally. And one day I overslept at my friend’s home, I couldn’t sleep because her cd player had stucked in a loop and the bzeep bzeep sound kept me awake for the most of the night.
I slept on the top part of the bunk so if I went down I would wake her up. (And waking people up is one of the things I hate most to do.) So I rather let her sleep and I was to shy and embarassed in the morning to tell her.
But I wrote about it on the blog.
My, my… of course she found my blog and this article by accident and she came to me like “Why didn’t you wake me up! Why didn’t you tell me?!”
And that was the moment when I realised that everything you write on the internet can read anyone. Even the people who you don’t want to know about it. Especially these people.
So this is the reason why I don’t like writing personal stuff on the internet. (This and the stalker I used to have, but it is a funny story for another time.)
The important thing to say is that I really like reading blogs on webcomics to see how the artists are living, even if I don’t know them personally.
And I think you would like to read something like that too.
I always think about my readers as my friends. And as I said earlier, I love my friends.
Have a nice day!
p.s. I changed the website today a little, so if you want to comment, there is a Disqus comment system now.
