There are followers and there are followers. Some people have thousands of followers gained through follow-back craft, yet few people ever read what they write. Then you may see folks with half as many followers getting tons of engagements and interactions.

Those people probably earned the bulk of their followers by writing things that people wanted to read. Consistently.

It’s all about the writing in the end.

And hard work.

But people don’t like hearing that. ;-)
