Although My Comic started fast on Tapas due to being on staff picks, I have seen very very little actual growth in the amount of readers after posting for about a year. I started off in the mid 300s, and I'm still in the mid 300s.
I'm not sure if it's something about my comic, or something about Tapas, or if they're just different audiences - but I'm struggling to maintain and grow audience here due to problems with people unsubbing so often.
On Line, I've seen a much faster growth and very few unsubs in comparison.
I really like the interaction I get on Tapas - more people comment and I have a core audience that reads it every week whether or not my overall sub count is dropping.
However, it's very disheartening to struggle so much with growing and maintaining that audience. Of course it COULD be just my style; that people aren't particularly interested in here. I had assumed it must be a difference in the types of audiences.
