Hi FatPurpleBird :- D
Thanks for asking questions! Everyone has an answer bubbling inside them, and they're just waiting for the right question to release it! So the more questions, the better!
I uploaded according to a schedule with a couple of my older series. Part of it was for the audience, part of it was an exercise in discipline. But eventually the deadlines made it feel like a chore, and as a result, I don't think my comics turned out as well as they would have if I took my time and enjoyed the creation of each episode...not to mention it takes a bit of a toll on other aspects of your life.
Since then, I've just been doing comics at a sort of leisurely pace. It's a bit frustrating since progress on my stories is so slow, and irregular updates can be put off some readers...but so far, I've been a lot happier with the quality of work I've been putting out than before.
As is the case with every art, do what works best for you! But don't feel obligated to crank out comics on strict deadlines...remember, you should be doing comics because you want to, not because of impatient readers!
