It’s common in the art community to share half baked paintings among ourselves and celebrating a new one as soon as it’s done. Cheer each other on, and in the case of those who are already selling (or trying to) it’s important to always have a fresh feed on Instagram for instance. Show up regularly or be forgotten, just as it is with blogging.
My Instagram life being less that prolific so far, I never had very high expectations for it, but lately I’ve been bombarded with new followers. Not the kind that click ❤️ on my wonderful photos, or even better, leave a comment to engage in conversation, but more along the lines of “Click here to instamagically buy 5000 new followers”, “Join the people of light to become rich today” and that sort of thing. (and some that apparently sponsor perfumes and stuff, I have no idea what the hey that’s all about) They also don’t stick around for more than a minute, as one can discern from my utterly stagnant total.
