God and Son

Poking the bloated corpse of religion with a pointy stick to hear it fart.

Curtain call for God.

on August 1, 2013

My life is getting a bit busy at the moment & the figures have dropped to almost half of 6 months ago, so I’m either going to have to think about dropping G&S down to one Sunday cartoon, or wrap it up.

If the figures were up in the 100’s on a daily basis again, then it’d be worthwhile keeping it daily, and although it’s great that there are a lot of fans out there, it’s getting hard to fit the time in and justify it against current reader figures. Even the charity event I’m doing has only had one or two donations from the advertising I’m doing on the cartoons (I thank those people from the bottom of my heart). I’m not expecting lots of people to donate as I know people do their own thing when it comes to charity, but it really reflects the number of readers coming through at the moment.

Edit: Thank you to those who have donated since this post was published. It is greatly appreciated, & thanks for the messages.

I’m mulling it over at the moment…

It’s a BIG ASK time…

I’m part of a team raising money for CANCER RESEARCH. I’m not sure about you, but I’ve always found that financially supported science has always come through when prayer ultimately fails. As such, I’d like to ask for you to donate or share this link…
… or even do both

Many thanks. It’s all greatly appreciated.

    Sorry to hear of the possible demise of G & S . I for one would miss your wit and thought provoking insights.

      It’s getting hard to fit them in. Admittedly some of the drop in number is offset by the increase over at Facebook, but it’s still hard to find the time at the end of the day.

      There’s also a fair chunk of demoralisation going on, as I know the people who enjoy it aren’t the type who need educating. The stupid still runs strong in the blinkered believers though.

    I, for one, would miss God & Son. It’s one of the first things I read every morning. But I understand how the daily grind can be. If once a week would be easier (of course!) then do what you must. It’s been fun, though.

      I’ll keep it going as much as I can, but the last thing I want is for it to become a stone around my neck. I enjoy writing them, and if that ever stopped, then there’d be no point in carrying on.

      Thanks for the comment – Greatly appreciated.
