Is Change Good? O_O?

Okay... I've been doing my comic since August 2005 and lately it's actually been starting to get more and more linkage from people who independently just link my comic... which means Iâ€™m getting more hit... which is great for a webcomic... right?
Well... here's the thingâ€¦
Right now I have a lot of homework and such piling up... and my comic is not one that's very quick to make, it's generally about 4 to 5 hours per strip. In general I do most things very fast... but for some reason with this comic it just does go that way... and the sad thing is that i don't think it even looks like it takes that long. I've tried to use differnt methods to make it quick... but it turns out to either make it just take even longer or just look really bad.
So lately I've been thinking about perhaps taking a little hiatus from the comic perhaps until this quarter is done or maybe longer... and experiment with some other styles and maybe even other premises for a while Iâ€™ve been thinking about the "4-koma" set up and just how not many comic use it well except for maybe Sexy Losers and it really seems like it could have a lot of potential and give a lot of freedom if used right. And also I was thinking about having more of a cast of characters since people can connect with a comic a lot better if there's a real cast... if so the comic would be very different... of course i MIGHT just keep doing it the same... I'm not sure.
But I know that the Rule #1 for webcomics is to keep your webcomic updated regularly and on time. And the comic is JUST starting to get really noticed. Is this a good idea? I was thinking of going up until 50 and then give it a rest... or maybe ever right now... i don't know... i'd hate for people's first impression of the comic to be "no new comics for a while" though...
I dunno... What do you guys think? Should I change it to be simpler, or a different format, or different set up? Should I give it a rest? or WHAT?
Thanks in advance!! ^_^
(gaahhhh!! I should be doing homework know >_<)
