Y’all sound like your purposefully talking past each other. Listen
Getting a feature dosn’t mean you’ve made it
No shit, Any non delusional creator knows that a feature isn’t going to mean shit unless they keep advancing and keep up the wrath ethic that got them that feature in the first place- but please don’t deny that getting featured or getting into the the noteworthy comics selection, didn’t help with sub count. It dose. And yes maybe after a week of being featured you loose half of the subs that you gained from it cause that’s just how readership works around here. But you know what? You still got that other half, and those people who unsubed? Well they still read it and still gave out likes till they stopped. This still helps with numbers and stats.
Now all this is irrelevant to the most important part which is the >psychological< part which is simply people like seeing there sub count go up which is why it’s incredibly disheartening when someone used to care about getting that one new subscriber and change into “oh look I only got 100 subs this week, damn.” It kind of starts to feel like you’re becoming one of >those< creators.
Now It’s impossible not to get to that point cause the number game is always going to effect us but this is why we always try it humble ourselves with that thought possess starts happening.
tapas owes us nothing
Yes exacly that’s why it’s nice to have a community that supports each other rather then continues to make walls
luck isn’t a factor
This is completely nonsensical, if you’ve ever thought back in time of how you got to the potion that your in you can bet theirs gonna be sevral coincidence of people just “because I did this today.”
No, I don’t think you should rely on luck but if you actually read about “successful” people and talk to some other big sub count creators- some of them would tell you “yeah it was supposed to be a fun side thing and then it got big over night so I guess I’m doing this now.”
Right place right time is a thing and I’d never say the most of the people who “made it big” didn’t deserve it. I’d say they’re one of the many people who exisit who DO deserve it who got lucky enough to get picked out. Cause the thing is there’s so much saturation of creators and ALLWAYs will be that there will always me MORE people who deserve recognition then the people who don’t. And A lot of these people don’t get recognized till AFTER they die >usually< cause someone wants to cash in on their death. Cause that’s always fun to wake up to on a news article
Can we all just agree that everyone has a giant wall they have to beat there heads against till it works out? And I’ve never said anything bad about people cause of sub count- that’s a dumb fuckinh reason to dislike someone, but just like you guys feel unwelcome when people talk about “the big guys” people arnt gonna feel too good about you when you pay their heads and say “oh child your precious feature won’t matter so stop worrying about it.” Like, hello I thought you where the ones who said to work hard and always think about promoting yourselves but now your like “oh not stop worng about tapas lolz”
And no I understand that’s not what your trying to say but text isn’t exactly the best format to read people and people will read what they think your trying to imply if your not clear enough.
