Update 2/12/13: For the month of February, donors that contribute *any* amount receive an exclusive wallpaper based off “Jason Fox, Storm’s End” – a strip featuring the characters of Bill Amend’s FoxTrot! Thanks to the generous permission of Bill, we’re able to give this reward out with a clear conscience. Small preview seen here. Thanks for your contributions, and thanks again to Bill!
As The Daily Blink has grown in scope and ambition, so have the realities that come along with projects of this nature. Scott Kurtz once wrote during the growth of webcomics as its own subculture, ‘Success can kill your webcomic’. It’s just as true today.
Over the past year, we’ve expanded our server hosting a couple times, upgraded some hardware for strip creation and streaming video, and made more than a couple software purchases. Now that we have a new website out of the way, we wish to turn our attention to matters more tactile: Convention booth materials and expenses, store products that aren’t from a print-on-demand website, and other important steps that allow us to act like a grown-up adult webcomic. By donating, you assist in that goal.
In short, we will never guilt you into thinking that it’s only through your charity that we’re able to keep this going. However, contributions accelerate our growth in more ways than we can count, and we’re forever thankful for that boost.
