    Steemit

    It's odd because there are no categories so to speak, yet there are. It might just be tags displayed oddly, I don't really know, but if you go into a specific webcomic item (eg: this) you get a sort of category like something, which is based on their faq is the main or primary tag of the post.

    [Publishing] GlobalComix is nearing official launch, here's a sneak peak of what to expect

    So that means that I can't have my Latest chapter or Latest 100 pages or Latest [insert whatever] as paid content?

    [Publishing] GlobalComix is nearing official launch, here's a sneak peak of what to expect

    Looking forward to the embed feature, and to more free time on my end to catch up to everything that happened around webcomics in the last couple of months.

    Tales of Midgard Comics and Short Stories

    Update! Yep, Tales of Midgard is back! Long story short, a lot of pretty bad things happened to both of the creators of Tales of Midgard (that is Liz and I), which forced the comic(s) into a state of perpetual hiatus. The timing was extremely unfortunate as we just started The First Magiknight...

    Tapastic vs Webtoon vs Self-Hosting

    This'll be a bit of a thread necro (as well as a self-necro as I forgot when I last posted) but I recently found this article about self-hosted wordpress webcomic sites, their advantages and a lot of useful tools.

    The Ins & Outs of Wordpress, ComicPress, & site building

    Do consider that most themes have a lot of customization in them, meaning that two sites running the same theme can look totally different. Just to give a live example, the site for Tales of Midgard uses a theme called Avada. It's a rather popular theme with a lot of customization. I picked a...

    Global Comix - Another Hosting Platform

    That's really good to know, as a matter of fact, some sort of mini tutorial or a description would be great. I did notice that you can move the corner points, but I would not have guessed, that you can add new ones by clicking an edge. As for the frames. They are great. The end results are...

    Global Comix - Another Hosting Platform

    I uploaded the First chapter of Tales of Midgard yesterday. So far my experience is mostly positive. I don't understand why there's a cap on most of the text boxes, but the existence of a cap is not a real problem imo, however, the fact that you do not get any feedback on how many characters...

    Global Comix - Another Hosting Platform

    This looks decent and the TOS does not contain any abusive legal nonsense (related to copyright, skipped the rest of it tho).

    Advertising comics

A few of the payment methods: CPC: Cost Per Click (often mentioned as PPC or Pay Per Click) CPA: Cost Per Aquisition (cost per conversion) CPM: Cost Per Mille (cost per 1000 views) CPD: Cost Per Day Naturally, there are other ways you can...

    Advertising comics

    I never used either for ads, but I know people who use facebook ads with surprisingly good efficiency. I have yet to hear of anyone using it to advertise webcomics, but I've seen print comic ads there and I can only assume that they were worth the money. Facebook does have rather robust...

    Webcomic Avenue - Top Web Comics' alternative to Tapastic and Webtoon?

    My first reaction was that this is kinda disheartening. I'm the author of a webcomic with a growing reader base, as a matter of fact, 2017 August is the first month when Tales of Midgard is stable in the top 100 (hovering between 60-70). This leaves me in a position of either having to put my...

    Tales of Midgard Comics and Short Stories

    Update! A lot has happened in the past month with Tales of Midgard. Unfortunately, not everything is good, but I'll get to that soon. New pages are being made, obviously, as a matter of fact chapter 12 is progressing well, but the not so happy piece of news is that our updates were rather...

    Advertising comics

    I do some paid Project Wonderful and Google Adwords advertising for Tales of Midgard. I'll do a quick rundown of the paid traffic on talesofmidgard.com here, maybe that'll be helpful for you. Before we'd jump into anything, let me present you with... Numbers. Mainly on site traffic and the...

    Planning or Improv?

    I'm really happy you brought this up. Setting such rules up helps a lot, I, for example, decided that on average every chapter I write will be 21 pages long with coverpage included, and every 10 chapters will form a book, which is exactly 200 pages of content + book front/ back cover + chapter...

    Planning or Improv?

    As a writer, I'm all for planning with a flexible end. In my opinion, you should always know where your story is headed in the long and medium run, or in other words, know what the end goal of your story is, and what's the next big event the story is headed to. In this sense, I'm all for...

    Super Social Share

    I have loads of social media up my sleeves: I use Facebook and Twitter for comic and video (and occasional website) updates. There's YouTube, where comic related timelapse videos go, usually coverpages and illustrations, but there is a video showing a non-coverpage too. Most of the...

    How WEBcomic is your webcomic?

    I haven't even described my own comic here, so yeah. Like many others my main reason for being on the web is not mainly because I wanted to use all the awesome stuff you can do, but because being online helps a lot with getting your work to readers (aka distribution). By being online you can...

    How WEBcomic is your webcomic?

    So the title might be a tad bit odd, but the thing I'm interested in is, do you use the almost endless possibilities that are present in being digital instead of print? There are loads of thing you can do digitally, that you could not really do without the help of a computer (or...

    Recommend a comic game!

    Tower of God was the first thing that came to my mind and I think you'd like it. My 5: Kill Six Billion Demons Pluto (manga - which I recommend to anyone who has even a minimal interest in sci-fi) Phoebe and Her Unicorn The Breaker Tower of God Also I'm surprised how much and little is 5...
