Wonkie Blog

Below are some of the latest Wonkie blog posts - these are articles about Wonkie, as opposed to cartoon commentary on current affairs. You can find the latest articles about upcoming web developments, new site features, Wonkie competitions and promotions. Details about Wonkie contest and online competition winners will also be published here. Should Wonkie win the lottery, and the blog is going to be migrated to the Caribbean, this is undoubtedly where you will read about it first!

February 19th, 2019 (Updated)

Just a quick note to thank all our readers, commentators and email subscribers for their support over the last year. The Wonkie team has certainly had great fun making the cartoons, entertaining you all and reading your thoughts and ideas on topical news.

Last year this time, we had just published our first few cartoons and literally had only a handful of subscribers. As of yesterday, we have over 5,500 email subscribers and over 2,000 fans on facebook (Click here to become a Wonkie fan on Facebook today!). There are now over 200 cartoons posted on the site and we are in the process of launching another cartoon site that will be less politics and more general cartoon fun – stay tuned!

Please continue to help us by spreading the word and encouraging friends and colleagues to join our community. Feel free to forward our Free CartOOns by Email promotion – if you are a Wonkie email subscriber you stand a chance of winning one of many prizes including Wonkie T-Shirts, Custom Pens and MP3 players.
