  • I've been on the web since 1994 but I'm still new to this.

    I've been on the web since my first year of college back in 1994. That said, there is still alot about it that I don't know much about nor how to fix. I know for a fact that I was so concerned about switching my domain over to this new site that I never considered pulling my old blog posts off of the old site and then moving them here. Now that is pointing at THIS site... I don't know how to access the old site. Maybe I'll ask my 9 year-old nephew. They probably teach that kind of stuff in first grade now.

    The thing I'm most concerned about losing is any weight that the old blog posts might have had in search engines for certain keywords due to the age and abundance of those old posts. For instance, Manchester, NH was something I had definitely written into LOTS of blog posts. Now I'm concerned that Manchester, NH is not going to be something that the search engines use to bring up my site, when people might be looking for comics book artists or illustrators in the Manchester, New Hampshire area.

    I had lots of posts about 24 Hour Comics Day and the years that I had participated. Not to mention all the posts about Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH and Granite State Comicon (known as Granitecon) and all the years that I had particpated in that.

    Either way I have to find a way to rebuild my old Top 10 Favorite Comic Book Covers post because it was a huge result when people were searching for Mike Zeck covers.

    For now, keep in mind: Manchester New Hampshire artist comics illustration granitecon Granite State Mike Zeck Top 10 Best Daniel Larson.

    HOT BONUS TIP: Facebook does NOT like you changing the name of your "business" page. They also don't like it if you don't want to capitalize your name. Part of their "naming guidelines" specifically states that you must use "proper" capitalization and punctuation. So, even though my "brand" is circlecomics, all lower case, all one word... they don't want to see that. Fine. I'll play along, but it better mean granting me the change.

    How do I know this? Because I'm changing the Daniel Larson's "Stick-Man" page called "Daniel Larson's Stick-Man" over to a general circlecomics page called "Circlecomics." So, assuming that change gets approved (I assume a special session of the board of directors will have to be called and a two-thirds majority vote for it to pass. Fingers crossed, me and Zuck haven't been friends for a while).
