Debate Over Ignoring Your Audience Versus Pleasing Your Audience

This Keenspot thread shaped up to be an interesting discussion of the relationship between creators and their audience.  Kicked off by a post worrying about a one-week dip in readership numbers (!), Carson Fire and others take the thread into a discussion of doing what you want versus acknowledging  what the readership wants.

It’s kind of a perennial debate (and not just for webcomics but all arts) and one for which the answers are always going to be different because people have different reasons for why they make webcomics.
