What would be the best/a good platform to use if I wanted to start sharing the comics I draw? Considering cost, effectiveness, expousure and convenience. I draw them for fun, so dont care about income, i'd just like to share them with people.

Ive thought about prehaps using Taptasic or other such sharing sites, but ive also heard its much better to host your own site for navigation and such. Ive also comsidered facebook/tumblr but chapter based series would not work very well in those mediums.

Any advice or ideas from people who host their own websites or webcomics appricated. Many thanks.

tumblr is great cuz you can force your way into the tags of other people by making it slightly related. tumblr is amazing for content creators cuz people have tags they explore daily and you're just pushing yourself in there daily.

the best approach is a varied approach. use multiple hosts and have say, your website be the only one thats up to date. the others should always be a few chapters behind to convince people to check it out.

the best way to advertise is to have some fan comics. something beautiful / dramatic that people can find from their fandom, then see you do originals.

i created 6 new episodes of sailor moon for fun, millions of views, and when i created my own original series afterwards a fraction of them went on to watch that, about 10k

I think that multiple media approach is probably my best bet to be sure. Did you happen to host your original series on your own site?

I've thought about that and would like to as I get a lot from these boards. Im just not sure which board would be the best to post to. /ic/ seems try and chase away threads dedicated to self content sharing, and while my style is manga-based, wouldn't be acceptable for /a/, which leaves maybe /i/ or /jp/ but again not sure ..

my series was only six episodes and they were all released within like a month or two of each other so i didnt really do a strategy. after working on it for so many years i just wanted to get it up an done with.
