Last week The Daily Cartoonist hit the 10 year mark. I started the blog as an experiment in 2005 to better understand what was going on in the comic industry. I didn’t expect the blog to take off as quickly or become as popular as it did. At the height of its popularity it was reaching about 2,000 unique visitors a day. Not too shabby for a hobby blog.
That said, I am very cognizant that I’m limping into my second decade. Blog posts are infrequent and few these days. I haven’t yet been able to articulate what or where I will take the blog in the future, but I’m sure I won’t be retiring from it anytime soon. I appreciate your patience as I figure out the next steps.
The blog has opened the door to many friendships, both virtually and in person. Cartoonists in general are a very friendly sort and you all have been very welcoming and supportive. If you’ve been a long-time, or even a less than long-time reader, thank you! It’s been a fun ride these last 10 years. I have enjoyed it immensely.
