Need advice for a strip comic I'm doing!

Hey all! This is my first time posting...I need some help in making a decision!
I've been making a weekly strip for a kid's paper (aimed at ages 8-11, basically) called Battle Academy. It's a lot of fun to do...humour, action, martial arts, dodgeball...got everything I love to draw and write about. It's also in color, and basically would update once a week (can't do anymore because my workload otherwise is massacre!).
My basic dilemma is whether or not I should make it an ongoing webcomic series. I like the characters, can probably think of endless stuff for them to do (at least 4 years worth of strips on the current schedule, I imagine), and love doing it...on the other hand, I don't know if it's something that will catch on, basically. Like...I can deal with doing it for a small audience, that's totally fine. I just have a problem with doing it for nobody but myself...like, that feels kind of silly to me.
So should I go for it? Should I not? I figure it's best to go to the experts about this one...
(Almost forgot! The website address is http://www.inkskratch.com. The webcomic can be found under the heading, "Webcomic". And thanks!)
