No-one ever became a success overnight. If it looks like they did, then you are probably missing out on a lot of low level prep work they didn’t before you noticed their ‘overnight’ success.
Building a strong foundation, sticking to and repeating your core message and perfecting your craft are all ways to build up to that success.
My most popular work is always the Dungeons and Dragons map tile generator. It has slowly gained in popularity over time, and now drives the vast majority of visits to the toadflaxgames site. In the spirit of building on foundations to promote successes, I’m going to be making some improvements to the generator, to make it the best it can be.
Let me know if there are any improvements you’d like to see, and I’ll look at implementing them.
