Topic Past or present tense?

I know most stories are written in the past tense. I'm curious what most of you think of stories written in present tense, especially from the first person view?
I wrote my first story here, Chloe's first spanking, in the present tense. My idea was since I was the narrator, I wanted the story told as if it was happening real time. I wanted the story to unfold simultaneously for my characters and the readers to give it a sense of unknown and suspense.
But after I published the first two parts, I'm beginning to regret my choice. I feel like it's somewhat awkward to write in the present tense at all times. I've been considering going back and change them to the past tense so it'll be easier for me to continue.
Do you guys think it's worth the effort? What do you prefer or if you don't care either way?
