It must be hard to be followed and then not followed, to have the world behind you and then scattered to the wind. I don’t know what this is like as I have never been followed by a great many. The followers I have tend to be friends and family, bless their hearts, and the occasional unknown. I have never been expert enough at marketing to have true followers. My friends become my fans and my fans become friends and the blend creates a lovely mix of support. But mostly, I have hungered for followers, with no idea how to get them. That is painful. To have so much of my work not seen at all, not received, as if I were singing my song in an empty cave but would having followers and losing them be worse? I wonder.
