Bell-Blogging Blues

Given the dearth of comments that plague many a blog, one can’t help but wonder if he or she is speaking into a vacuum. At least, that’s the way it sometimes feels to me, being the lonely cartoonist toiling away week in and week out for the invisible “masses”.

Maybe if you’re reading this post, you could wave and drop me a comment below. Feel good Friday, right? To sweeten the pot, I’ll mail a PCW sticker to one random commenter. You have until Sunday…

Get a postin’!

-Krishna

Update: Based on the number of comments and a random number generator – I’m pleased to report that we have a winner! ShadowWing Tronix – please get in touch with me to claim your prize!

    More uncubed3 and you’ll get many, many readers back who immensely enjoyed reading about your family.

    But then again, uncubed3 is the icing on the cake for your already substantial reader base who follow your site regularly.

    Alas, combined … Bible-like distribution.

    Get thee hence to yon drawing board.

      Hypothetically speaking: What if I were to post new Uncubed comics on pcweenies.com? Say on a once per week basis? So, two PCW comics and 1 UN3?

      Curious to hear your thoughts…

        That could work. Of course, it would be much better if it were on a five day per week basis … per comic.

        (Muahahahahaha!)

          2013, the year of cloning – imagine how many comics I could get finished if I had a replicant?

    I only choose to comment when I have something to add to the conversation. I despise vapor comments like, “first, any question that can be googled,gj, like, etc.” :D

    I’m leaving you a comment, but I didn’t actually read your post. :-P

    So have we really come to a point where we’ll comment for a prize? You bet we have!! Give me that sticker, come on man…give it here. :)

    I know I don’t comment enough, but I do enjoy what you do Krishna, keep up the good work my man, may your comments be many, and your trolls be few. :)

    Side note, the dialog in panel 2, reads funny to me. Should the “My” be there. Happy Friday.

    Well by the pics of your book you know people read your site pretty much daily. I do know some whose blog never gets read outside of family though.

    I echo a lot that went before, I’m a regular reader but until I have something to add…(like: “Krishna, I named a character in my comic after you” for example) P.S. I feel your pain

    Hello! New reader here. Been checking out the comic whenever I happen across a new one in my Twitter feed, but haven’t had any comment-worthy feedback.

    I know the feeling. I haven’t had a comment on my site (barring spam) since last April.

    Is this because there’s no comments on the previous two entries?

      lol – it’s just an observation in general. Of course, I’m always appreciative of your comments, Kevin. Thank you for your contributions!

    Sometimes it’s hard to come up with something to post. That said. Sometimes it’s good to just throw out a ‘Love the strip. Keep up the solid work!’

    Ask a question, submit to social bookmarketing and give away a t-shirt. Then you get tons of comments.

    I read this strip every week and love it. I will gladly post a comment for a chance to get a PCW Sticker! When I win I will be glad to talk about it online. I get plenty of comment son my blog; unfortuneatly I have to block 99% of the posts because they are spam!

    Nothing comment worthy to say to a non-geeky strip.
    And I have the sneaking suspicion: Nothing comment-worthy for a GEEKY strip either.

    Put me down in the “I;ll comment when I have something to add” column.

    More Uncubed would be great! I follow the PCWeenies and Uncubed RSS feeds, so when You post, I find out about it. I can understand how the excitement of being expecting, and of the newborn, can lead to lots of comics. Now that Sonia is a few years old, the terrible twos, and all that, maybe aren’t just as comic worthy. I remember when Uncubed started you said that this was a project for her, for when she would be old enough to appreciate how you recorded her life in your unique way. The rest of us also enjoy being vicarious members of your family. :)

    … and I just caught up on this via RSS.
    My blog posts are in list of uncommented (and probably unread) ones. But then, the (rare) satisfaction of being able to take time out, organize one’s thought and write something is good enough for me.

Tell me what you think!
