I don’t know about you, but I would rather share the good work of someone else, than my own. Each time I am forced to promote my own work, my stomach suddenly turns to a rock, and I basically feel like an idiot. I usually attempt some form of smart-ass comment to lesson the harassment on my followers and friends.
I have to laugh, actually…out of my 3,000 plus followers, 99% of them love to retweet and share my posts about them and their good work, but seldom are they compelled to share mine. I am basically left thinking I suck…(welcome to my first chapter in my self-esteem issues…needing someone else to convince me I’m worthy…how lame is that!)
Of the 10-15 real life folks of who I really connected with, we’ve an awesome system that allows us to share each other with the world, and as my time gets eaten up by sincere relationships, friendships, and kindred spirits…not to mention THEIR amazing talent, you will start to see the amount of folks I share for declining. Call me crazy, but I think it’s much more important to support those folks that support you, and this is where I have to put my focus.
I’ve seen how many seeds have sprouted from my year-long growing season…and as the time approaches for harvest, like most good farmers, I will be keeping the best of the bunch, and returning the runts to the soil where they can bask in manure and think about how many others they can take advantage of.
That’s all for today!
