This comic is about dumb things I say. When I hear numbers my brain just goes……bleahhhhhghhhhhhhhh! I have serious maths phobia. (By the way, we say ‘Maths’ in Australian English but ‘Math’ is used in American English). My husband is the one that has been paying attention to how many Facebook likes recently. I wouldn’t have even realised that the increase was about the same number as the amount of likes I had slowly reached over 10 months.
So yes, as most of you are aware, there has been an explosion of new readers! This all happened because of a news article that was put onto several Korean news sites. I’m really surprised at the attention because I really just write for just a broad international audience and didn’t think that many Koreans would be that interested, but I’ve had a really great positive response.
This has lead to more interviews and attention and I’ve been offered a book deal by a Korean publishing company. I don’t want to just print out the comics that are on the blog, so instead it will hopefully be our full story of how we met and lots of other stuff that has happened to us (in comic form). Still lots of funny stuff, but some sad stuff too. I’m really happy to have this offer.
Blogging and making comics has lead to some other work that is pretty exciting too, so my life is suddenly getting a lot busier. Although I may have to cut back on how many comics I make, I definitely won’t neglect the blog. I always read every single comment but lately I haven’t been able reply to every single one, but please know that I read them and I’m so grateful to everyone that comments. I always remember peoples’ screen names too, especially those that have been commenting since the early days of the blog.
