Starting now (well, some minutes ago), fictionesque.com can tell you some simple statistics on your readership: Yes! we have stats and they come in a pretty-fancy-and-easy-to-read chart. Right now it shows the number of readers your fic or story has, soon we will be adding an option to allow you to see from where are your readers coming and what chapters do they read the most.
We are really happy!
We are thrilled about the attention this fanfic site has been receiving: with lees than 2 two months fictionesque.com is receiving already around 50 visitors and 60 visits a day (and they are stay for about 3 minutes each time). Some may say those numbers aren't groundbreaking but to us it is quite an achievement! and the 73 users (26 with published stories) and their 46 fanfics (almost 2 stories per author!) are a flattering demonstration that fictionesque.com is on the right track.
Many thanks to every each of those 73 registered users, and a really heartfelt welcome to the others that register almost daily!
Fanfics in fictionesque are not being reviewed
This is a sad thing indeed... A great deal of writing fanfics is working towards polishing our style, technique and quality and many times it is hard for a writer to grow without critique from a reader not involved with the story or the writer (unfortunately, our friends don't always point out your mistakes). Also remember that reviews are place to point out the good and bad things about a chapter or story, they are not only to give praise to the writer: remember it's all about the fanfic and not only the writer.
So, please click on that "add yours" link in the siebar after reading a chapter: do it as a courtesy to the writer and the comunity.
What else is coming?
Now that we have the stats management in place we will be giving you a way to know which chapters are read the most and from where are your readers coming. Aside from that we have planned to extend the stats gathering to your profile so that you can also know who is interested in you.
Other ideas that we have in mind are:
- Add comments to this blog.
- Recommend this fic (to other users in fictionesque.com or via email)
- Private messaging
- New RSS feeds for tags, categories, etc...
If you think there's something more that you'd like to have in fictionesque.com let us know!
