Website stats and outlook for 2013
Here is a chart showing the visitors per day on Sandra and Woo and Gaia:
The number of visitors is probably the most important measure of success for a webcomic creator. So I’m very glad that the number of readers of Sandra and Woo is still increasing. Especially Software Engineering, Now With Cats! has quickly become one of our most popular comic strips, resulting in 39,000 visits on Monday, 19 November, and Thursday, 29 November.
Thanks to everybody who spreads the word about our comics and posts links to them on his Facebook page or website!
Next year will bring two important milestones for Sandra and Woo. In July or August we will publish our 500th strip which will be a particularly complex one. Its creation will take a lot of time so we might have to publish some guest art instead of new strips in preparation for it. Later, on 19 October 2013, Sandra and Woo will celebrate its 5th birthday. While we don’t plan to publish another special strip on that occasion, you can look forward to some other special features. The year will begin with a story arc that introduces Sandra’s alter ego Sandy South, private eye extraordinaire. A parody of the detective genre is just something I always wanted to do.
