Found at PAX, Bill Amend! He gave a fantastic panel on Friday where he showed off some of his nerdier strips and talked about how much he loves video games!

Webcomic Artists: How do you decided when to have an RSS feed and what goes in it?

I absolutely love my RSS feeds for convenience and the fact that I never have to 'unfollow' a comic that's gone dormant. If it updates again, I'll get the happy news and I don't have to keep checking a dormant site (eg. Bunny, dormant, and Chester 5000 XYV, slow but not dormant).

Something that really annoys the heck out of me is when a webcomic which previously delivered content in an RSS feed modifies the feed to just an update notification or the blog with no comic and forces me to click over to their website. Before you go yelling at me for being an entitled jerk, know that I have never ever stopped following a comic because of this. I just delete their feed and add their website to a different bookmarks folder with all the other comics who don't have feeds. I know, I'm still being an entitled jerk for wanting my free content delivered to me in the manner of my choice from people who are probably taking a loss on their work.

I guess I'm wondering, do RSS feeds really divert so much traffic that they affect ad revenue? Is there no way to embed ads in a feed to recover this revenue? +Nina Paley, who writes Mimi and Eunice, embeds a +Flattr button on her RSS feeds. Even if the ad revenue is affected, people can still use a monetized 'like' button to contribute a little cash from the feed. What are the other options? Or is force funneling traffic the only feasible way?

That probably could have something to do with a recent glitch in a previous version of ComicPress that was keeping the comic strip from showing up in the RSS feed. It happened to me, and my strip no longer showed up. I had to update a php file in order to fix it.

Unless they really did turn it off, then that is their own perogative. It's your choice to keep it on or off.

I choose to keep it on, but I provide a smaller version of the strip. I find that I'm more willing to click on a link if I see a "teaser" of the strip. However, just a line of text usually gets no interest from me.

A very good review of my sister's writing! She is beginning to generate quite a buzz for her webfiction. If this summary sways you, consider checking out her main sites (linked in the text).

It is encouraging that the House committee refused to vote on SOPA, but there is a lot of work left to do. This article is quite alarmist, but I think we're walking a tight rope in our current political state where we need to be aware of the possibility of things getting worse.
Today's post may seem like it doesn't belong. After all, this blog is normally about fiction, and what follows doesn't have a damn thing to do with fiction. But this blog also about Pirates. ...

Fuck yeah, PAX East! iNcontroL:"So, who's next to play for some Kingston RAM? Who's got their hand u.....Hi, Sasquatch!"

Sasquatch was totally hanging out at PAX as a regular nerd and come to crash the EG n00b pwning party. It was pretty fantastic!

Yeah. That was a nice surprise to see them there. I got their signatures on my mouse pad. At one point they had DeMuslim on keyboard, Stephano on mouse vs Machine on keyboard, IdrA on mouse.

Yes, please.
 
Let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and corporate leaders, on Wall Street and elsewhere, whose policies and greed are destroying the middle class of America.

Please read this. It is a truly well written commentary on a very important disconnect.
