So there’s the first full calendar year of Station V3 updates since 2013! I hope you’ve all enjoyed it. To mark the occasion, even the spinoffs have updated today, for the first time since 2017. Check them out at Z7, Ebb’s Children, and Silence in the Darkness on Q16!
In other news, you may (or may not?) have noticed that I’ve removed the Twitter and Facebook feeds on the main page here. I’m pretty much done with Twitter, and there didn’t seem to be much point in posting updates on the Station V3 Facebook page, since Facebook didn’t seem to be in any hurry to show those updates to very many people. You can find me now on Mastodon.
Another change this past year, I’ve finally switched to using a drawing tablet regularly instead of pen and paper. The switch for daily updates happened back in September. I had tried a Bamboo tablet a few (10?) years back, and drew a few Z7 strips with it, but the disconnect between drawing on the tablet and seeing it on the screen didn’t work very well for me. The XP-Pen tablet works better for me, and makes a nice second monitor when I’m not using it for drawing.
So let’s bring on 2023!
It’s great to see a full year of V3.
As far as social media is concerned, I have stopped receiving any updates from most webcomics I follow, (unless they are on Instagram & share videos ).
Twitter is a mess so let’s leave it at that.
Not sure of mastodon, and am not really interested in social networks anymore.
I’ve enjoyed updating again!
For social media, while Mastodon isn’t perfect, I’ve found it to be an improvement over Twitter so far. More interesting, no ads or promoted posts.
