So...back from the convention, and I have learned lessons. It didnt go well; I know this was an inaugural event(first show of this con), but outside looking in, the ball was dropped- the end result: LOW low turnout. I'm still scratching my head, trying to wonder how anyone looking to start a con would totally whiff on using social media to promote and put the word out there?
So suffice to say, I'm back on my "pre-emptive con planning for 2023" BS...I'm looking at some cons that I want to do next year and I gotta get out there and make sure I get them. This experience hasnt soured me from doing any more out-of-town shows, but if I do, I'm not doing anymore first time/inaugural shows.
I'm on the waiting list with AWA(Anime Weekend Atlanta); if a vacancy pops up and they pull my name out of the hat, then I'll do it...at the same time, if I don't get called then I'm good too. I'm gonna just hunker down, work on my Clique #4 comic, do some standalone pieces that I may turn into prints next year, and eventually get back to working on the webcomic so that I can finish out the [current] chapter in 2023.
Also gonna start trying to work on my website so that I can not worry about where my comic will be next year; def gonna continue to publish on Tapas for the time being, but side eyeing W*btoon...if I bounce back on that platform, cool but I'm not gonna go all out there.
