I’ve been making comics for almost 2 years now. But one year ago my comics were just getting picked up here and there by smaller Facebook pages. I had about 3,000 Facebook fans when one day, IFLScience on Facebook, (who had over 6 million fans at that time), posted one of my comics. I was elated!!!
I was getting email after email stating that my fan base was growing exponentially. “Finally,” I thought to myself. “I’m getting rewarded for all of my hard work and perfected diligence.” Then, between bouts of jumping up and down and laughing hysterically, I noticed a weird email about a Facebook comment which stated, “A real scientist would know how to spell Celsius.”
What!?! I quickly went to the comic they posted of mine about how scientists see vacations as compared to most people and there it was: not one, but TWO, terrible spelling mistakes!!!
What would you do in this case? Read more about how I handled the mistakes I made and what I learned from this process.
