I just wanted to have double my views and likes. I don't expect getting anything from my efforts other than pleasing an audience. Even then I don't do anything special on Patreon it because I'm waaaay too mediocre when it comes to cool perks n' shit.
And despite being to the point where I am having financial issues, it just really feels pointless to even use the Patreon or advertise anything. I also am against pandering or begging when it comes to that stuff, so maybe that's why I'm getting nothing from it other than having that small Patreon link under every comic.
Honestly, at this point, I have no idea why I'm not getting anything, but at this moment, I ain't complaining about it. The views and subscribers alone are why I continue to push myself. I don't do well with disappointment because of a single reason (actually, I can't handle disappointing anyone either because it emotionally KILLS me THAT much), so I format any worry about something that isn't going to happen anytime soon and continue the way I work to please my followers and express my creativity the way I want to do.
Effort works better than appeal. Appeal gives you an idea of your direction, but effort strives for it.
One day, when I get a job doing the thing that I love, that is where I'll be at peace.
