Because I can’t imagine that I kept a lot of readers after an unannounced absence of well over a month. (Yes I can because so many of you are my good friends in other contexts.) But, you get back on the horse.
Good news: I’ve begun regular updating again this week, adding material to the backlog.
Bad news: They seem to show up fine on RSS feeds, but not on the website itself. (I.e., if you click the “previous” button from the latest visible strip, you can’t see them). I’ll let you know when I’ve worked out this kink.
Good news: Next week I’ll begin regular non-backlog updates; new strips with current dates, three times a week.
Additional potential good news: I’m going to see if I can do at least four and maybe five strips a week for a few weeks so that, in addition to the current strips, I’ll still be replacing the backlog stuff. We’ll see.
Bad news for long-time readers: A lot of this “new” material is re-worked strips from “Fresh Fish 1.0” in 2006-9. Truly new stuff is on the way, but old stuff wins out in terms of efficiently making up for lost time and getting back on track. (For what it’s worth, I am happy with some of the changes I’ve made.) The upshot to this is that the faster I burn through “old” material, the sooner Fresh Fish is running on 100% new material.
