Site updates, comics, other projects, and getting noticed

Hey everyone. I changed a few things around on the site last night, mostly on the main page to fit some things to my liking. There is now a small news box and the menu has been changed to accommodate a link to the upcoming comics section because...well, I plan to start doing some comics as well. The cartoons page has also been changed a little bit with different categories and links to each episode's Youtube page. We did have some problems last night with a "" trojan in the site, so today, I had to take out every page of the site (including each cartoon's page), delete them from the server, remove the trojan's script, and then reupload them. Everything should be fine now, but if anyone encounters any problems, please let me know immediately and I'll see what I can do to fix it.

Now, I'm really trying to promote the Geoweasel Youtube channel in order to reach new people and a wider audience. Of course, no, I'm not trying to go viral, but I am trying to increase the series' popularity. It's kind of a downer to see only 50-something people watched your cartoon while thousands of people flock to see a kid talk to his webcam in a high-pitched voice. To be honest, I have absolutely no idea how to promote anything; I don't know how to get stuff noticed. I try to put things out there, submit things to sites, but nothing ever seems to happen. I would spend money on advertising or Youtube's Promoted Videos service, but...I have no money. So please, go check out the channel and rate, comment, favorite, share, Digg or whatever you can to help get Geoweasel out there. And for those of you who are already helping promote the show, I thank you. In fact, the most recent episode, Overreaction, was featured on The Daily What and POPTUB, which was amazing because this is the first time I've been featured anywhere.

I'm currently working on two non-Geoweasel projects for other people. I don't know if I can say what either of them are, but you'll definitely be able to see them when they're done. So I won't have the next Geoweasel cartoon, "Chitterbug" done for a while, but in the meantime I may be able to get the first comic up, so look out for those.
