Greetings, Hoard of Ignored!

Yes, I totally blew-off posting Minions last week.  So shoot me.  I've haven't done that too often in the years I've been doing this comic, so I feel like I had a freebie coming.  Besides, to make up for it, I posted an inventory-clearing TRIPLE FEATURE this week, based on the always-popular theme of "heads."

Actually, it was just the cartoon I intended to post last week, and a couple of dusty toons that have been at the bottom of the inventory forever.  Don't tell.  Heck, for all I know, these are the three funniest Minions at Work cartoons ever!  (But probably not.)

Anyway, it's been a week of it here.  Lots of behind-the-scenes stuff happening here at the Lair, some of it good, some of it Not Good.  Nothing I'm going to go into here.  Just distractions.  Also, shaking fist at one-eyed-yellow-Tylenol-Minions-Come-Lately!  Take that, you and your bazillions of dollars!

I'm also doing a lot of soul-searching about doing a major Site remodel, dumping our current Blogger Platform, and going to Wordpress with a nifty-looking web-comic-designed theme called CartoonPress.  Take a look here to see what I'm talking about.  It would look much more professional and be much easier to navigate (especially when looking through the archives).

On the down side, I've have to migrate 200+ old cartoons and a lot of other content over, do a lot of set-up and design work, and it would add monthly hosting fees (plus the suggested donation for the theme, which I'd feel-honor bound to pay).  I'd also have the issue about what to do with the old site.  Leave it up on blogger? Try and buy a new domain for the new site?  And since a lot of our traffic comes in from TVTropes.org where they have tons of direct links to cartoons.  All of these would be broken if I put the new site at www.MinionsAtWork.com.

So I'll probably do it, but how and when remain to be seen.  If you think it's a good idea, let me know.  You can also help keep the lights (and pay our hosting fees) by making a small contribution using the button below, shopping on Amazon using our links, or buying swag from one of our stores (and thanks to those of you already doing that).  One thing I'd REALLY like to tone down would be to eliminate the weekly pan-handling here and replace them with some discrete buttons, banners, and menu options.  So the move would all-around be good for you guys.

Let me know what you think.

Sounds like a good plan to me. I love Word Press. And do you have a way of finding out if I've availed myself of your lovely donate button? I can't remember. But I've been trying to donate to all the donate-buttonable blogs I frequent often and yours is certainly among those.
