The major change I want to inform you of is the format of Eat @ Shrimpy's. In August, with the start of the next major storyline, you will see a new design to the website, hopefully one that will be clearer and easier to follow for anyone out there that may be stumbling upon Eat @ Shrimpy's for the first time because of a drunken Google search for "midget porn".
In the next few weeks, I will burn through my inventory of comic reviews and we will be going to a three day a week format. No filler! When I stated this blog, I thought it was more important to have content for at least five days a week to drive traffic, but I realize now that that shortchanged the people just looking for a good webcomic. To have to slog through posts about video games that came out last year or comics that no one really cares about anymore was not fair to them, and quite possibly drove away any new readers. From now on, Monday, Wednesday and Friday will belong to the comic strips, just as they always have. The only thing you will see on Tuesdays or Thursdays will be stuff that directly correlates to the strip. I will be revealing the "Cast" page next Tuesday, for example (should I have done this three years ago when i started? Of course. Better late than never).
So not only will I be rededicating myself to just the strip, and redesigning the site, but I am currently working on another webcomic that will be going live in December. I will let you know more about that as it develops, but it is filling a big hole in comics in general nowadays (one that I have decried forever), so I think/hope it will be a hit.
If you are a long-time reader of Eat @ Shrimpy's (Hi Mom!), please stick around through the transition, it should be pretty painless and you will get exactly what you want, a comic about a group of friends trying to run a restaurant while navigating all the weird trials and tribulations of life. If you know someone that has not read the strip yet, or maybe read it and left, invite them back, I'd be happy to show them what I've done with the place.
Thanks for your years of patronage, here's to many, many more.
