Over the years I've posted a few times to this forum (previously under a username and email that have long since been lost) and I've always tried not to "site whore," so I apologize if this message comes off that way. However, I've been having a bit of a creative crisis as of late, so I thought I'd take a chance and appeal to this forum for some insight (yes, call me crazy).
I'm coming up on 200 webcomics and I'm trying to decide if I should call it there or continue "fighting the good fight." My issue isn't really about traffic or monetizing the site - I'm not doing anything to try and harvest cash at the moment, I've really just been focused on building the body of work and finding a rhythm for the strip. My concern is more of a quality and an "am I wasting my time" kind of thing. My stuff is pretty good, but I'm not sure it's great, and more importantly, I'm not sure if I'm just building up a big pile of mediocrity.
I recognize that not every webcomic theme will appeal to everyone. I also realize that I'll have good strips and not-so-good strips. But I hate to think I'm laboring at something that people will generally just shrug off as not worth their effort to read/view. I've had doubts before, but I've always attributed that to the pile of reasons we all come up against that tries to derail us from making stuff. Now, I'm trying to have a rational conversation over deciding if this is where I should put my time or not. I have plenty of creative outlets, so it's not like I'd abandon art/comics altogether. This is more about trying to decide if this particular effort is worth it or not.
I'm also guessing that others have struggled with this very issue of whether to continue with a webcomic or not. I've posted a few strips here and would welcome thoughts, critiques, criticisms, comments, praise, and harsh words. Thank you.
