A cure for fretting and flailing, right here.
One of the most frequent things I get asked is: ‘How did you build your following?’.
It’s a fair question. A few years ago I started as everybody does, with pretty much zero support and 5 followers (2 of which were my mother who had signed up twice to make sure she didn’t miss anything). Today I am a 100% audience-supported artist; I have a blog that is read in 170+ countries by a community of almost 18’000 subscribers, and a Twitter following that is sitting somewhere around 88’000 people.
All of which was accomplished from the ground up with zero external media or paid advertising.
Read on, and I’ll tell you…
Human beings crave community, it’s a deep down thing. A fundamental need which has likely endured unchanging since the first of us crawled up from the darkness of the ocean floor and out into the light.
