Another question

I'm thinking that what my site (SSSC) needs is more output. Instead of three, five pages a week, and stories back in the five page limit. Do two ISM stories a month and two superheroine stories along with them. Right now what I'm getting are a lot of revolving door subscribers that will likely come back later for another dip into the pool and leave again.

Now with the time available to me I'd have to abandon the ink and color on my stuff and do it in pencils only in order to do five a week.

This  isn't finally decided, but I could sure use some input.

  1. Hm... As a producer, I can understand your concern. But I wouldn't think to far into it. I'm going to assume pop-ins and out is normal for online accessible stuff. To keep drop offs from happening, you'd probably have to put out stuff 3 to 4 times as often as you do and remove stuff just as fast. Which is just as much of a turn-off as it is a posetive. But what you've suggested does sound pretty good. However, you have to be realistic on if you could pull something like that off or not.

    1. In order to do everything I want to do as far as subject matter I would need to do 7 pages a week, truthfully. 5 pages I can do in pencils for sure. 7 pages...well I don't know. Or I could do stories like The Ring and Timmy Quick as one off pfd purchases and produce them at my leisure. Thinking out loud here!

      Pop ins are normal and a problem though it's totally understandable.

      I would remove things if I had depth in my site that was a bit deeper. I think I'm almost there though.

      I'm getting a tweak put in on my site that will allow me to put thumbnail splash pages on my welcome page to show people what exactly is inside the site. All stories would have a splash page. 3d Monsterstories does the same thing and I happen to know it works for him. I think the appearance of the welcome page is a major detriment to the site rignt now.

    1. You aren't the only one either, which is why I'm not too afraid of the quality issue.

  3. revolving door subscribers are everywhere but if it really bothers you that theyre here you could do a 'bonus archive' area of your website that only people who subscribe for a few months straight can access.
