I've picked up the pen and drawn my battle lines for the glory of Scribblehub. Currently looking for more to join the army or provide useful information (for fun).

Motivation: I have sorta ingrained myself more and more in this website as of late. Now I really like the site design, it's free, community is good, advertisement is great+free, and the stories are my style. My loyalties lie with Scribblehub now and I was wondering about the competition/enemies.

Wondering how the battle goes,
against the many foes.
Dire straights?
Somber woes?

How is Scribblehub comparing to competition for the number of users (authors and writers), internet traffic, stories posted, and general community sentiment?

Anything else you feel like saying? Huh, yeah, talkin ta you. Scream it out in text format.

Known thine enemies! What other websites are there for competition in this kind of online writing style and platform? I can think of a few.
Royalroadl.com
Webnovel.com
Wattpad

Anyways. Let's do battle with them. Full on war. Not sure how this is gonna work (I'm just slowly writing a story LAWL), but just punch first and ask questions later. Steal their souls.

P.S. I'm not sure if this thread is coherent and comprehensible, but that's alright since I wasn't trying to be.

Well, not really a statement or fact but just my observations

Royal has the most brutal reviews I've ever seen on any website. They really don't like low effort stories and aren't afraid to stamp them out. On a another note, my story get more attention there than in scribblehub. Can't exactly tell what that means for me though.

Webnovel readers will read through anything. Legit. Can't really say anything other than that.

Wattpad for me is trash and by far the most brutal website for newcomers. Only because they don't have a latest update system.

And last but not least, the icing on the cake, our very own beloved scribblehub. This website has lots of people looking for girls love, isekai and litrpg. Generally more forgiving than Royal Road but it needs help in advertising the lower guys. The people in trending monopolizes most of the readerbase in the site.

Weeb stuff is more accepted here though. Which I like very much. No one bats an eye if you use japanese sounding names or weeb talk like oniichan and Onee-chan.


Then there is creative novels, but I don't have much experience on that site.

You gave a strong post there. So much truth in your words. I'm really happy about the advertising for new stories and updates on scribblehub+novelupdates. It's a very welcoming site. You are right that the trending section is a quite monopolized.

I give my complete approval for weeb stuff. Weeb = very good. By definition I am unable to be a weeb since I am actually part Japanese, but doesn't that make me partly qualified to give out weeb certifications, degrees, and diplomas? It could be the true difference. All this low quality unapproved weeb stuff going around the internet, but only scribblehub would have officially certified and approved weebs.

Like a 2 week training course and you could get a weeb certificate.
2 years = diploma
4 years = degree
If you speak and read Japanese better than me you get a PhD. (Not hard)

Should I charge for this?

Based on the updates log for all the chapters it seems like Scribblehub is really starting to pick up steam. Mathematically at an exponential rate when I look at it. So I think now is a great time to be writing things and pushing out releases for early authors. Competition really isn't that strong for some things, but it is growing at an exponential rate so strike now while the iron is hot!

Wattpad is like fanfic incarnate, lots of BL. More amateurish than most established novel sites in my brief experience there, however a good place to start out if you're not confident in your writing.
RRL (now RR) is pretty critical, and leans more towards 'perfect' literature. Many writers get 0.5s just because the novel "wasn't for them". But the traffic there is about 3 times better than SH. Might change over time, seeing how much more novels are coming out recently.
Webnovels... I've tried it. Seems good. But it has some kind of obsession with K-POP stars. Idk, the writing prompts are weird. I got decent views there after leaving an unfinished novel behind for months.
SH is a nice blend of weeb (which helps because i sometimes use japanese suffixes) and the genres that I like, soooo.

I don't know where you're getting your numbers, but it's pretty good that SH has managed that many people in 0.75 years. From the chapter updates from the start of the site to now it is clear to see that the userbase is currently growing exponentially. Now is the time for me to hatch my evil plan and attempt to steal political power. Please don't tell anyone.

Webnovels, I looked at it too! There is some kind of Korean obession over there. :LOL:

I would say like father, like son. But in your case it is more like author, like character. Evil plan to steal political power.Tsk tsk tsk.

From my personal novel, and others, including Ace's works. I've even tested it on a separate account to see how fast a novel would gain traction.
In that department, SH still has ways to go, but it's getting there.

Generally speaking, the layout is way more pleasing than Wattpad. I can deal with some ... other differences so long as the website in and of itself isn't so buggy that it's practically unuseable.

With that in mind, I may be venturing into another path eventually: one of them is graphic novels, the other is essay-fiction, with follows a more literary fiction path that has some differences from plot-focused fiction.

Wattpad has more established official genre groups, then again they tend to die pretty quickly if Literary Fiction is any indication.

Yes! couldn't agree more. The trending really does monopolize the readerbase and almost every single one of them is the same genre. It's honestly boring seeing the same shit with just a different anime girl on the cover.
