Step 1: Create a web comic
Step 2: Draw the web comic every monday, wednesday, friday for over 4 years
Step 3: Watch all other web comics become successful while yours relatively fails.
Step 4: Lose motivation and stop posting comics on a regular basis
Step 5: Watch traffic to the comic almost double in the months you're not posting regularly.
Step 6: Sit in confusion while looking at your analytics trying to figure out why your comic is more popular when you post sporadically instead of on a schedule.
Don't get me wrong. We're not talking huge numbers here people. We're talking an increase of about 20 page hits a day to 40, but still. it's been at about 20 a day for the last 4.5 years. I stop posting regularly and within a month the number of views doubles. It doesn't make sense.
"You only get 40 hits a day to your comic???" you say.
"YES!" I say. "TELL YOUR DAMN FRIENDS TO TELL THEIR FRIENDS AND MAKE THIS COMIC POPULAR!"
