Chapter 3: Back to Mary and Jack and the kids!

It'll be almost a week before I get back. I think it's very interesting that the comic has neither gained nor lost any readers over the past month. It doesn't bother me, but it does remind me that I don't know much about comics, yet.

By readers, Do you mean subscribers?
I think you have a bigger following than you think...

I have 140 unique views a day.

Like Kill3st said, many of us are lurkers, I confess me too, and we didn't subscribe, but we still like you!

Yea, i use Google reader to see, when a new comic is up.

I know at least 3 people who read your comic that I dragged in but they don’t subscribe. Also what does it me to subscribe do I get something or do you robot view?

I don't count subscriptions, I count unique views! But the more the merrier.
jst56strong 27th Jul 2011, 9:14 PM edit delete reply
I’m sorry but what does unique views mean?
view 27th Jul 2011, 9:18 PM edit delete reply
The page has embedded visits counter. I get maybe 1200 pageviews per day, but that's usually the same 140 unique visitors visiting 9 pages. For example, our back-and-forth in the comment thread counts as maybe 10 views, but you and I are the only unique viewers.

I have an idea to get more readers. You have a contest. Whoever gets the most people to view (lol) your comic gets to tell you to draw a custom panel or picture or gets inserted into the story. To measure we each post on a specific page and who has more comments by different people gets the prize. It would be fun for everyone involved.

sorry about the grammar my auto spell check weirded out. but you get the gist right?

I don't want to have such a contest. It's a good idea, but it's just not my style.

I'm really not worried about readership. 140 people is enough.

Ok. That’s your choice. In any case thank you so much for the consistently excellent work.

Try to have fun on your break not making any comics. I know I won't...*sniff*

Maybe you just need to publicize more.

Yeah you just don't have the advertisements. The consistent readership is a testament to the fact that you do know something about comics. Once you advertise and gain new readers, you probably won't lose them either.

Nah, I hate ads. Loath them, actually. They make my skin crawl.

Well that's your choice then. Nothing wrong with it, but I wouldn't base your comic talent on your unique visitors then. Clearly it will take much longer to grow readership just by word of mouth.

Yeah, I wasn't actually bucking for a larger audience, I was just musing.

When you posted the link on HF, I just clicked it and then bookmarked this site.
Hank 28th Jul 2011, 6:37 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, I found out about this comic from your HF account too.

also what is your avatar pic supposed to be?
Cause it looks like a giant penis

Oh, everything looks like penis to you, Hank.

"Everything's Coming Up Penis"
Guest 31st Jul 2011, 2:06 PM edit delete reply
Kind of looks like a phone to me.
Iamari 4th Aug 2011, 5:25 AM edit delete reply
I thought it was some1 with long hair and no arms.
Hank 31st Jul 2011, 3:58 PM edit delete reply
So, im going to interpret that as
"yes, it is a penis with hands and a mouth holding a pencil."

Im really loving the world of the comic though!
JasperWB 31st Jul 2011, 4:45 PM edit delete reply
It's a diabolical hot dog or a diabolical artist with long hair!
jst56strong 1st Aug 2011, 5:21 AM edit delete reply

Someday, I will get around making a TvTropes article for this comic, and appropriately indicize it so some people will stumble on it.

As it is now, it's veeeeeery hidden, and I think pretty much anyone comes from HF or Comic Fury.

Maybe posting it on "some" "image board" might get some audience, but it also might drag in some trolls, so eh.
LazyRanger 7th Sep 2012, 11:11 PM edit delete reply
I found the TVTropes page in my browsing. It certainly seemed like an interesting series, but as I was away from ComicFury at the time (on a long-term hiatus, I suppose you could say), I didn't start reading.

The thing which actually got me to start reading was the fact that this is in the all-time popular window, and I sorta remembered the above interest, so I put the two together and figured it'd be a worthy read.

So far, I am not in any way disappointed, and will enjoy this comic to its end. (As I caught that it had, indeed, ended. :P Looking forward to it!)

New reader here! If you had 140 unique views, now you've got 141! :P
