New comic! Click to see!

I'm going to try this, I think. I haven't been updating the lj, because I don't like seeing people link to it instead of my website (which is still my home base and main source of comics-related income!). But then I didn't want to leave it either, so I think I can work the lj like the tumblr and just post a leading image. Just a little change, no big deal! With the site, twitter, tumblr and lj I feel like things are all over the place, and I'd like to keep things as tight (but accessible!) as I can.

thanks!

I LIKE this change. I've been missing out on quite a bit of your (lovely) work, simply because I'm used to getting notifications for updates here... and it keeps slipping my mind to actually go out and check your site. This way you get the hits, and I get the comics, and everyone is happy!

Except for mean folks who don't like happiness. Sucks for them.

And now that you're back, I realized that you'd been missing in action; and that I missed your work quite a lot. (Now to visit your site!)

Great idea! I've been missing your posts here, so I actually put the website back on my reading page as a feed, but now I can take it back off again! All I need to know is that you've updated, and then I can click through to the actual website. Cool cool cool.

Also, hilarious Pony comic!

I like my cross-posted updates like I like my... innuendoes... tight and accessible!

The pony's many faces are entrancing. I should like to see a guide to reading pony emotions from facial expressions, I feel I would learn a great deal.

Oh, I'm glad you're posting a link from lj since this is my main hangout online (and then I'll know about new comics fastest XD). Have fun in San Diego (I'd definitely be coming to see you if I'd been able to make it to Comic Con this year...)!

And the flower patch ghost was never the same. Some days, when the breeze carries over the scents of nearby paddocks, you can hear a strange whimpering somewhere amid the daisies.

Thank you for not abandoning lj entirely! I don't like twitter and don't use tumblr (because things get so overrun so awfully quickly) so I really like having updates of your comics on my flist. In fact, I got all happy giddy seeing two new ones today! But I can also completely understand not wanting full comics at your lj-- so a leading image seems perfect to me :)

Thanks for keeping your LJ going, which I admit, is the place I see your updates. I hadn't seen them in so long I was worried that you'd been taken up by the cognoscenti and destroyed by an intense social roundelay, so it's good to see you haven't. (Or if you have, we don't know it yet.)

Okay, so no "donate to Kate Beaton" button... Hmmm... Am I just being blind? I recently set up a yearly donation to John Allison, because he's the Kate Beaton of some very unusual village in England, and he rocks! How do I do that for YOU?

Kate! You are a blaze of inspiration for downtrodden history majors worldwide! I know you've mentioned on your mainsite that you don't accept official requests...so I'm not going to make a request, I'm just going to remind you how cool Peter the Great was...You know, war games, shipbuilding, beard taxes, dentistry for his court? Just thought I'd throw that out there ;) Thanks for all your work and for your generosity in sharing it!

Haha, you are so right about movies being important. Most people (including myself) don't study history in depth, and movies are a great way to expose people to history to a degree they normally wouldn't have been.

Most people, however, don't bother to take it beyond the movie. So any inaccuracy is ingrained into people's minds, without being fact-checked. It's irritating.

There is now an LJ feed of your tumblr, for those who don't want a gazillion different platforms or are just old and set in their ways, like me: beatonna_tumblr

Don't know if you get notified of comments here, but I'm writing this just in case, and in case anyone else drops by to see what's up -- there aren't all that many subscribers to the feed yet who maybe don't know about it, but might like to.
