I guess my thing is, if you post a page a day, why would you need a weekly rate? I could understand if you were working full time, and don't have time to do a page a day. Plus there is a lot of aspects professional comics people add to their pages that I consider entirely unnecessary: toning specifically comes to mind.
And yet in manga, having an entire team devoted to line art, lettering, and color toning is apparently common. But this can be completely forgone, if you skip modern conveniences and don't mind it looking a little sloppy like I do.
