Yeah, I do split up my chapters too, but I always upload the whole chapter over the course of one day. I would hate doing the weekly splitting thing to my readers. This is just a personal preference, not an ethic thing. I just find it so unfair that the readers won't get a "whole" experience, even if that "whole" experience is just another buildup chapter.
Now, this attitude probably won't earn me any consolation subs, but I think that it's the one thing that I don't want to switch away from. I'm able to control the reader's experience a lot more this way, even if I have to pay a major price of lower sub count for it. I can only hope that the steady, stable fanbase pays off in the future.
And yes, I was talking about myself. XD I don't think I'm being hard on myself. I just had to accept the reality - my way of doing things is less efficient(in increasing one's fanbase) than yours. I am not bitter about it, just slightly sad that it has to be this way. I wonder if there's any way to remedy this.
Okay, there is. I would have to write two chapters in a month. No way I'm gonna be able to do that with my current health situation. Maybe that's what I'm most troubled about.
But that's life. I'm mostly trying to remedy the low update schedule by arranging cross-promotions with people whose stories I like. I've figured that's the best way(for me) to go about promoting myself, and even help others in the process.
