Hunting for an Excuse

I've updated the "your ad here" image for my Project Wonderful ad. It's a cute skit between Nova and Elgin. :3 You'll be able to see it whenever there are no bids on the ad box, but you can also see it by voting on Top Webcomics!
Hello, my lovelies. The wonderful snarkington went and wrote a critique of TW@WC. It's pretty much all about how I can improve in the artwork department, which is where I know I need to improve. If you're a comic artist (which I know many of you are) you might want to give his critiques a read. They're funny AND educational! Like Bill Nye! But comics!
I was digging through my old sketches and found an early sketch of Captain Hanson. VOTE to check it out!
So we're gonna try updating Thursday Night/Friday Morning. I have some reasons. If you care, these are them:
1. Monday is a fairly popular update day for comics. I may be getting lost in the crowd for some potential readers (this isn't a brilliant reason, or the biggest because you've gotta pick a day, right? oh, you don't? oh)
2. Although the problems with CF are apparently fixed, they've seemed to have happened around the times my comic was upload (obviously my huge readership contributed to the heavy traffic. That's a joke. I'm kidding.) I had been entertaining the idea, and the crashes pushed me a bit further in that direction.
3. Perhaps my biggest reason, I end up spending Sunday thinking a lot about the page that will upload that night/next morning and it distracts from what should be, for me, a time of rest and worship. It's natural to be excited about the response your artwork will get, but I don't want it on my mind when I'm at church or Skyping with my husband's family. Moving it away from that time will help me with that.
4. As of these days, I usually have Friday all or partially off, and that makes it comic day!!! when I work on all things comic related anyway, so why not make it upload day too? See it's perfect.
If this doesn't seem to work out, it'll really be no harm done. I won't do it in a way that buys me a week, if I ever switch back you'll be getting another early page. So. yay!
Check it ouuut! If you have a comic and advertise on other sites through Project Wonderful, you should definitely advertise on my site, because it will literally cost you, like, nothing right now. Or if you sell Regency era costumes or Steampunk stuff or something, that would be pretty related, too and you should also advertise. My hope is that there are no inappropriate or bothersome ads interrupting the indisputably enjoyable experience of reading this comic. If you, as a reader, see one whose content or animation offends you, please contact me and I will block it. I'd rather lose ads for readers than lose readers over ads.

Thanks, guys! I do this because I love this story and sharing it with you, but If I make a few pennies from this labor of love I will be even happier. :)
