I have let success go. I am officially doing my comic strip for the love of it and I feel awesome! I have been worrying so much about being successful that I lost site of having fun. I was so tuned into making money at these comic cons that when I failed to even make enough money to cover parking, I felt like a failure. I could not see how great the shows went and how all the key connections I am making at these shows are so much more valuable than making a profit.
Does this mean I am going to be trying less? Oh heck no. If anything I will now be working harder, if that is possible, because I am now enjoying this for the first time in over a year. I truly believe that AdSense dropping me was the greatest thing that ever happened. I still do not know for sure why they did, but it may be that my content in the blogs is under 500 words. If that is the case, I understand. I have more important things to work on that making sure I blast out 500 words on each blog. I want to focus on drawing and expressing myself with my troop of beloved army ants.
I splurged and picked up a few gray Copic markers. I am going to play around with them and post something cool tomorrow for everyone here. STAY TOONed!!!
Speaking of having fun, I gotta run. I have a poster to create for everyone…. AND myself.
