A Tour Around the Redesigned Site

I added a lot of new stuff to the site over the past 1.5 weeks, as I'm sure you'll notice if you've been here before. Allow me to give you a tour:

New Header - It's just a little sleeker than the old one and takes up less space.

The Sidebar - this is the main addition to the site, inspired by Gothic architecture just like the rest of the site. It allows me to include more content.

--At the top you'll see my "Donate" button. Donations of any amount are welcome, and I'm extremely grateful for anything! I just recently left my job for health reasons and am now adjusting to the world of freelance and limited income. ;) Donations help to pay off the costs associated with running and creating the webcomic. By next week I'd like to have some sort of reward for people who donate, whether it be an extra page, a wallpaper image, or something else. Suggestions are welcome!

--Next is my panel of social media buttons. Here's the easiest way to find me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, DeviantArt, Livejournal, and more!

--Sponsor (through Google) - Including ads on the site has already become a great help to offset the costs of web hosting and advertising my own comic. I really appreciate all of you putting up with them. Over time the relevance of the ads should improve, so hopefully you'll all see some things that interest you. If you EVER run across an ad that plays sound automatically, please let me know! I HATE ads with sound, and they have no place on my site. Also, please let me know if you come across any other objectionable ad so I can block it.

--Featured Prints - This is a little spot where I'll feature another project that I'm working on. It'll always be changing. Maybe a print, maybe an Etsy item, maybe something else.

--Latest Tweets - This runs a little slower than I like. Let me know if it detracts from your enjoyment of my site, or if you like it! I'm still on the fence about this one.

--Comic Listing Sites - Places to vote for DOTU or find them among other comic listings.

--Ink Exchange - A link exchange of other webcomics for you to visit.

New Footer - includes another word from our sponsor. :)

ALSO: I've updated my links page. Most of the linked comics now have banner images. I've also added a few new DOTU banners of different sizes for you to choose from if you'd like to link to my site. (Please do! I'd love you forever!)

So that's the gist of it. Let me know how the site works for you. I'm always tweaking and rearranging things, and I take feedback from you guys to heart!

AND ALSO: The Demonblog's site design has been integrated with the rest of the site.

AND ALSO!!! I'm announcing my TopWebComics November Voting Drive! Vote every day in November and you can win a DOTU card deck and signed print! And if DOTU is in the top 100 by the end of November 30, I'll update twice weekly throughout December. Check out the Demonblog for more info! Contest starts November 1!
