Hey, PoLsters! Thanks to the hard work of my homiest homey, C.A. Morgan, the Pride of Life website is back with a fresh and clean new look! Not only that, but we’ve implemented some features that will make your reading life easier, as well as some reminders of ones you may have missed.

New Features:

  • You can now browse pages using the arrow keys! Your days of clicking are over!
  • For non-US readers that can’t access the site, all current PoL episodes and future updates are available on my Weasyl account (individual folders are listed to the left).
  • Following PoL on Twitter? You’ll get an auto-update when a new page is posted, so no worries about forgetting to pop in on Wednesdays.
  • The Ask the Cast comics now have their own archive on the site, for when you need a breather from the main story. Just mouse over the Archive button and it’ll present itself properly.

As you might already know, I’m trying to make PoL into a full-time deal, and any little leg-up I can get would help. There’s still a ways to go yet, but if you’d care to lend a hand in some way, here are a few ways you can contribute!

How you can help support PoL:

  • Spread the word! Have a friend with similar tastes in comics? Why not introduce them? Ideally, I’d like for PoL to be a fun and inclusive experience for all its readers, so the more the merrier!
  • If you use an ad blocker, please consider adding prideoflife.com to your whitelist. Half the site’s ad revenue is dependent upon views, so allowing ads to display during your visit would be appreciated. All circulating ads are SFW, and don’t include anything obnoxious like auto-play sounds or rapid flashing colors.
  • Become a patron! If you have a couple of bucks to spare on the regular, please consider becoming a PoL patron via Patreon. You’ll receive different rewards based on your pledge, not to mention getting early comic updates! 
  • If you don’t fancy recurring payments via Patreon but still want to contribute, please consider making a one-time donation instead! You’ll see just below the page nav buttons, there is now a donation meter. If the target amount is reached, I’ll post an extra page the last Thursday of the month, making two updates for that week!
And I suppose while I have you here, I got a request to publish the results of the readership survey I rolled out a few weeks ago, so without further ado, the results!

Of 171 participants:
  • 133 (78%) identified as male/men
  • 32 (19%) identified as female/women
  • 4 (2%) identified as neither
  • 2 (1%) identified as 'other'
And in the listed age groups:
  • 129 (75%) were between 18-30 years of age.
  • 33 (19%) were between 31-49.
  • 6 (4%) were between 13-17.
  • 3 (2%) were 50+ years of age.
  • There were no readers less than 12 years of age.
The results were not at all surprising, though I thought female readership would be a bit higher (around 25%). I am glad that there were no readers less than 12 years of age, as PoL is a bit too intense for young readers at times. I was pleasantly surprised to see a sprinkling of 50-plusers in the audience, too! PoL's demographic isn't broad by any means, but I'm happy to see that it's something readers across age ranges can enjoy.

tl;dr - New site layout, arrow keys to nav, please whitelist prideoflife.com on your ad blocker, tell your friends about us, consider Patreon patronage/donating, hitting the 18-30 year-old male demographic pretty hard.

That’s it for now! Be sure to visit the site next Wednesday for the start of some serious superbeast action~

Okay, so, a few (like five or something) days ago I started noticing ads for your webcomic Pride of Life on another webcomic's site, and finally gave in and clicked the ad on Monday, then started reading it yesterday (Tuesday) because I actually had the time to read it then. I found myself hooked, then thought to myself "I wonder if there's fanart for this comic?", and came to dA to look. Then I found a link to this page on some fanart, so I came here to look at your gallery. Then I found your DBZ stuff, remembered that on one of the pages of PoL's site, you had said you were once a fan (not sure if anyone ever really stops being a fan so much as they just become less concerned about it), and decided to check it out. So I looked at the fanart, and started reading your fanfic, and despite hearing the characters in their DBZ Abridged voices, found myself thinking "Man, the Ginyu Force here is like the one on the DBZ I first watched." Then I read the "Recoome rhymes with doom" line and thought "Holy-! It is the one I first watched!"

...and yes, in real life I would babble like that with few pauses. Anyway, in short, love the webcomic and love the fic. Highly likely I'll reread it a lot, then eventually decide to copy and paste it to Microsoft Word so I can read it whenever I want when I don't have internet access.

Hello, I have just recently become a BIG fan of your comic. I've just skimmed through it at first, but now I'm getting into reading the whole story! I've read most of the major parts of the story and It's all beautifully done; the art AND the dialogue. And I just LOVE that big lovable puffball Kedamono! X///D He's just so funny and kind and (I feel embarrassed this since I'm a man, but I just gotta).....just adorable! He just looks so cute with all that fur.^////^ I'm beginning to love him as much as Wuffle!

 But, I also can't help but feel sorry for him too. His story's so sad. Beast or not hardly anyone excepts him...except for Minerva (bless her heart); and the Chieftain.....I think he's like backwards and forwards on the subject of Kedo (a nickname I made up for Kedamono), But I do think he cares. All Kedo wants is to be recognized as something much more than a village idiot; That he CAN make a difference. He may be a klutz at times, but he's got a heart of gold, and would anything to protect those he loves, no matter how much they pick on him. Sorry if it sounds like I'm going overboard by the way....I tend to go into a lot of detail when I'm expressing myself.....^^; ^^; ^^;

I just wanna hug the big guy so bad right now....

......eh......9///9

.......Can I if it's okay...? >///^///<

Hey, Golden! I'm glad to know you've been enjoying my comic so much! I'm sure Kedamono will find his place in time, and he'd probably be open to a hug, too. :D
