Well, it's happened... after four years of constant, regular updates on the same serial site (ranging from twice per week to every two weeks, depending), here we are - I've now had a month with less than 10 page views every day. So I got the "decimal" summary in Wordpress, where the high point of the graph for September is 10.0, because adding a decimal makes it look better, I guess? Huzzah.
This is what I would call a "dubious achievement". Definitely not something I set out to achieve, but you kind of reach a point where you stop begging for more votes just to see if it happens. Anyone else ever experience this sort of thing? Like, a stretch of time where your publicity took a left turn, a plot discontinuity you put in that snuck past the readers, a site/graphics update that was accidental, something else you succeeded at unintentionally...? I'm thinking sometimes it helps to share occasional misfortunes (or random luck), so that we don't all think everyone's doing better than us.
And just so that I don't sound totally self-deprecating, I have actually had four comments on the seven posts within my latest serial, which is already twice as much response as I had for the serial I ran at the start of the year. So, the four year backlog is invisible, but the current stuff has at least 3 people following along. All about finding the positive.
