Definitely need your reassurances and positivity and realistic stance. Much appreciating your words landing with me at just the right time. I also think knowing your community / following and speaking your truth with them is where the strength is. (Not in an echo chamber kind of way). Keep with the quality and meaningful content and that’s what matters. Grateful! X

That is so wierd to hear, also I deeply resonate with what you are saying. I guess the reason behind they don’t care about following community is because nowadays you can buy followers.

For me, the thought wasn’t so much that my following would make me worthy. It was more that the more people who saw my work, the higher probability that someone who could make a difference for me might see or witness my work. But - still…yeah…I love this message because it’s so true. I made a VLOG on my page about it yearerday

Thank you for your words and your message! This message that it's essential to grow our social media to create something meaningful it's so ingrained in our mind...that we tend to forget why do we create, we forget to enjoy the process of our art (drawing, writing,etc)😥

I was literally told this by publishers and agents when I pitched my book to them. That it won’t get published unless I have a big social following. Of course they benefit from maintaining that narrative. I self published.

I fell that message is giving others the idea that you have to be famous for being famous in order to be published. Like it feels like you needed to play the game, and it was making me miserable for a long time. Now, I forget the numbers and just say what I want, and my numbers are going up!
