Great day in the morning! The website returns.
The official Teddy and the Yeti website has been absent from the Internets for a fairly inexcusable amount of time, but I'm happy to say that as of last Friday, the site is back up and running with a few small tweaks and upgrades. At first glance, it doesn't look too drastically different from what came before, but I like to think that things are a little more streamlined this time around, and that I've cut out some of the fat that was there before.
One page I added was an interview page, which compiles the interviews that I've done here on the blog and in the printed comic. It serves as an archive of sorts, I suppose, and should make the search engines happy.
The store has seen probably the most changes over the previous iteration, hopefully all of them for the better. Most notably I've added both the trading cards and the crochet Yetis as items to purchase; all of the categories should be easy to navigate.
I've also added a section with webcomics and updated the comic preview section. Scrolling through these sections, though, tells me that I still have some work to do on the site. It's not perfect by any means and browsing though these pages will tell you why. Some pages (like the above "Eye of the Beholder" image) are easy to read, but others are not, and that's something I've got to remedy before I'm happy with it.
Overall, I'm thrilled just to have a damn website back up and running, especially with the Baltimore Comic-Con coming up this weekend. There are certainly still some bugs with the new design, some of which I've found out for myself already, but there are others I'm sure I'm still missing. I hope that if you, faithful reader, do decide to check out the new site and find something you don't like or think should be changed, you'll do me the favor of leaving me a comment right here on the blog or e-mail me you thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And in case anyone's forgotten (it's been a while, I know...), the address for the main webpage is www.teddyandtheyeti.com.
