Webcomic is an industry where you can be happily updating your comic when you wanted, or be as competitive as the top 10s updating every week, some almost everyday to keep the traffic and hope to earn that bacon.
After reading http://floatinglightbulb.blogspot.com/2008/11/limits-to-webcomic-success.html
Now while I am concerned about keeping Edepth popular to bring home bacon, (yeah, seriously, Edepth is bringing home some bacon now) even though it's not enough to live on it, it's a start.
I can only imagine what kind of day it will be like, 10 years from now, all the webcomic artists already know each other in the top circles, from online, conventions and so on.... and each one of us become the oldie, of this emerging industry....
Still can't believe it's starting to be an industry now.... wow.
Seriously... everyone started out as hobblists, no one expected to be living on this. Now this has turned into campaigns, I have to develop marketing stragtegy, think about how to cut costs, watch stats like a stock broker, think of how to speed up the production, how to reprogram my site so i can generate more profits, on and on. It's a business now....
I am doing all these, but if I think about it, it's still quite new to me, and part of me is still in disbelief how fast all these are growing.
