Thanks everyone for the kind comments, and your advice.
About the humour - yeah, I'm still finding my feet as far as this goes. I guess I'm not that fussed about laughs per minute; most of the stuff I enjoy personally doesn't always make me laugh out loud, but does make me go 'wow that's clever and a good story'. 'American Splendor' is a good example.
Thanks for the advice about the web hosting. I've tried both sites, and I much prefer the potential of Smack Jeeves. The colour scheme is right, as is the 'mood' of the site.
My main problem right now is that I don't know HTML. In order for me to do the web hosting thing, I'd need to know it. And I'm such a perfectionist art-wise, I'd need to know it well before I created a template. I'm just worried I couldn't produce a lovely template yet, and I won't settle for 'a bit shit'.
Blogger had some ready-made templates, and the one I'm using at the moment really suited the look and feel of my cartoons. If I knew how to replicate that myself, I would consider creating a 'real' website. But as I don't....
I dunno, what does everyone think? Shall I just throw myself whole-heartedly into a vortex of HTML education? I fear what might happen.
