Hosting, and a Return from a Hiatus - July 9th, 2011, 3:37 pm

Hello again, after an excruciating (and entirely unplanned) hiatus! Here's what's been up with Memoria the last few months, and where Memoria is going in the future:

After a long history with the comic host, Smackjeeves, I've finally determined it's time to move on. Smackjeeves was a great place to start; but recent developments have prompted me to reconsider where I'm putting Memoria. Most notable is the shift with the readership available on SJ- it's becoming more and more based on "yoai" comics or other forms of romance/erotic comics. I've ignored it for a long time, mostly because I assumed not everyone there was reading those (I certainly wasn't), and I wanted to stick to the community that my work had gotten it's start on.

But push came to shove this past month when I tried accessing my comic on local wifi only to discover the whole SJ host is blocked because it's deemed pornographic. It was a bit of a wake up call, to be honest.

I would love to stick with SJ for a number of reasons, but I'm starting to see that "the time has come" so to speak. I'm looking into a few different options for hosting while I continue making pages; hopefully by the end of the month I will have a new place to put Memoria and I can go back to updating as usual!

Keep an eye out for the new URL soon.
Thanks for reading and being patient! :)
