Thank you all for tolerating my spam through my hosting Community Spirit Week. I was very happy with the turn-out and the feedback I got from the features. The Spirit ball gets passed to `Steph1254
this week, so go and devWatch her for all of the festivities.
Birthdays! I know I missed a few this past couple of weeks! If you had a birthday during that time, please comment and let me know!!!
Last week was a huge endeavor, so I'm still behind. I had cleaned out my message center but am back up to 500+ actual messages. Just give me a few days and I'll try to get through them.
I think I have totally lost track of any features I owed. The new journals make it hard for me to backtrack and see what I've done. If I owe a feature for one of your contests, comment and let me know. Otherwise, I'm gonna move forward from here. I'm gonna start seriously using my to-do list journal to help me keep track of that stuff.
This past long weekend was wonderful. Thanksgiving turned out well. While I didn't get everything I needed done around the house, I made a HUGE dent. Plus, I finally finished work on my fiction serial site
. My hope is this week will continue the trend.
I've gotten a few inquiries over the last couple of weeks about my emoticon, Bitmap World
. No, the comic is NOT ending. Yes, we will be picking it up soon. In fact, it's next on our list. We hope to have new strips plus lots of other goodies this coming weekend. Stay tuned!
On a dA note, I have published my last 2 articles using Sta.sh Writer, and I'm happy to say it works much better. I actually had a good time of it, even though it's still a bit buggy. I just wish dA would have released it in this state rather than the half-working version that premiered. People aren't picky (well most of them), we just want things to work.
The holidays are lovely, but I tend to struggle with depression through them. Honestly, I have not enjoyed Christmas for the last 3-4 years. I love the spirit of the season, but there is still such an emphasis gift-giving, which causes a lot of stress when you don't have money. Anyhow, I'm going to do my best to be bright and cheerful, but if I seem a little sad, you know why.
Not much in the way of features, but I have a couple. Otherwise, see you all next week.
