I'm with you on the analytics thing. I'm sure the huge authors who have been writing for a long time would have great use for it. But at the start I'm even scared of just checking my followers/rating haha. Much less actual analytics.

I have Premium and I know that exact feeling. Seeing things tick up and down makes you question whether you messed up / the story isn't that great and so on. However it can also let you see things that stop you from over-thinking. For example my most recent story had a low rating for a while because I received one 0.5 star rating early that dragged my entire score down. Since the rating goes on medium the 0.5 rating outclassed the two 5 star ratings and one 4 star rating. But I was able to see all of the ratings and when they occurred and I knew what happened.

I'm a harsh self-critic so seeing the reason stopped me from over-thinking and judging my story too fast. I think it can be helpful as long as you use it as an observational tool and don't get too stuck on the numbers. It'd depend on the person.

Hey that was me! Thanks for the recommendation! It really helped me understand if I'm going to get premium in the future. I most definitely will, once I get my viewership up! Until then I'll focus on quality and consistent updates!
