Congrats on the listing! As I recall, you're not the first person to ask, so there might be a thread in the archives, though I did a very cursory search and nothing appeared. I think (like so much else) the effect of the listing will depend.
I actually screen capture my daily stats every month or so (I like tangible things), so I'll do a quick check... damn, "Time & Tied" was listed May 13, 2015, one year ago! (Happy birthday to me.) Prior to that, I'd get around 5 daily views. On the 13th, it jumped to 25 views, and then hovered around 12 views per day for another week. Billy H wrote a review on May 20th, creating another spike, and I hovered around 18 views per day to the 29th (WILD fluctuations though, a 21 view day followed by a zero view day). By the start of June, two weeks later, daily views were hovering around 10, where they remained. And kind of are to this day, huh. Soooo, I guess call it double?
As far as the "not enough readers thing" - that's happened to me. TWICE. After 3 years and over 220 episodes of Personified Math, I set it aside in 2014, despite having enough ideas to continue the thing indefinitely. Because I was barely scraping together 50 views on any one post, and all I heard was crickets. Quick summary: "Mr. Bruckman, there are hits, and there are misses... and then there are misses." (Any X-Files fans? No?) I did blog about the whole thing (see http://mathtans.blogspot.ca/2014/05/end-of-line.html for tales of my social media failures), took some time off, then started my current WordPress site.
The SECOND time was after 47 straight weeks of "Time & Tied" which in that time managed to perform several degrees WORSE than personified math. I'm talking less than 10 views on a post. (Did you KNOW Wordpress starts using decimals if your hit count for a week falls under 10?) The lack of interest in something I felt so invested in was killing me. I'm currently writing "Full Scale Invasion" instead, which has seen more comments in 2 months than I got in a year of T&T. That said:
(1) Perhaps I didn't know how good I had it with the Math thing. 50 views! Damn! So, I brought it back as a webcomic.
(2) I'm still stubbornly continuing "T&T" this summer; hopefully the current work gives me enough of a boost to coast through another 47 weeks of crickets. That's why it's still in my signature. I know it has potential. I hope it finds its audience.
All of that to say - sometimes, for your own mental well being, you might have to walk away from a story, so that you don't burst into tears at the mention of it or something. Know that it will still be there when you're ready, and if you're writing other things in the interim, readers* will still be there too. (*Note: Not statistically valid, being based on my sample size of 10 readers.) Best!
