Yes, I'm putting up the novel project I've been working on lately, snippet-by-snippet. They don't really receive any special amount of views (in fact, they receive very little if not at all). But it's easy to organize, the templates are fine and when someone asks for the novel I can just guide them to the introductions page.
With that in mind, I have three parts and the introduction published so far, and there wasn't a comment or any special page-view spike. I had two short stories put up little more than a month ago, these new chapters already gone ahead of them in total page views.
Writing them worthwhile, that depends on how you define worthwhile. I don't think they'll become my golden geese to produce lots of traffic, and I'm fine with that. I just want people to read them and perhaps pass a critique or two.
Apart from that. you retain the rights to what you write and publish here, so there isn't truly a 'bad' side to it.
