The Messenger & Follower Patreon is doing stupendously well so far! In a little over a month, we’ve managed to break through three milestone goals, which will enable me to do more with the comics! As a reward for accomplishing the first goal, I’ve created a brand new Chio-themed wallpaper that’s available for everyone, not just patrons! Thanks so much to everyone who’s supported us, whether it’s by supporting our Patreon, sharing a link to our comics with friends, or simply reading the comic each week. It really means a lot. Please feel free to download this wallpaper, and enjoy some desktop Chios!
If you want to help support Messenger and Follower, but are unable to back our Patreon campaign, that’s ok! There are still some other ways you can help support the comics for free:
- Click the little “Follow” button on the top of our Patreon page to follow our updates. Apparently this also helps our rankings on Patreon and boosts our posts and updates a little higher in the list, so people are more likely to see them!
- Retweet our comic updates and links on Twitter! (Or reblog our updates on Tumblr!)
- Read Follower using Comic Chameleon, a free iOS app!
- Or just share the comic with your friends!
As always, we appreciate your continued readership, and look forward to creating more new stuff for you to enjoy. Thank you!
What’s this? A Monday update? It is! The Diary will update daily until it’s conclusion in about two weeks, when Part 2 and Chapter 11 will pick up the main storyline, and return to a Wednesday/Saturday update schedule.
New vote incentives will happen on Wednesdays as usual, starting this Wednesday. But don’t let that stop you from voting daily! You can vote once per day for as many comics as you like. Your vote helps spread the word about Messenger, and is very much appreciated! ♥
Messenger is also now listed on inkOutbreak, a new comics directory. You can create an account to see update notifications for your favorite comics. If you use inkOutbreak, please add Messenger to your favorites!
That’s all I’ve got for now! Check back daily for new parts of the “Diary” story! Follow Messenger via RSS, Twitter, or Facebook to receive updates!
Hey comic readers! Huge apologies for the continued delay on pages. I’ve been seriously busy with the new job thing. I’m not sure how much detail I want to get into, but I’m basically working the job I’ve always wanted, so that’s pretty awesome. But by the time I get home I am just dead exhausted, so it’s been interesting trying to find my footing with my comic-making schedule again. But like I said, I will find a way. I am set on finishing this story no matter how long it takes. I am considering dropping back to one update a week temporarily until I can get a buffer together, I just haven’t decided the best way to go about it yet.
Thanks to a kind reader donation, there will be two pages this week! The first is the one that’s up now and the second will be coming on Friday. As usual, the counter will roll over to zero and another bonus page will be available once it reaches $25 again. (Find out more about bonus comics by checking out the Shop!)
Thank you for your patience with my schedule slippage. I am going to put together a note in the sidebar so I (and you) can keep track of how many pages are still owed. It’s my plan to make them all up, I just have to get my life back in order, which might take a little time. Remember, you can follow Messenger via Twitter, RSS, Facebook, or Tumblr to have updates delivered straight to you when they happen! Don’t forget: activity in comments or on the forums are also extremely motivating for me! It excites me when people are interested in my story, so don’t be shy if you’ve been considering joining up with the forum or leaving a comment.
