I needed to read this. I received emails and had top writer in Inspiration, Creativity, Mental Health, Books and Writing added to my profile and I thought, What? Me? Is no one else writing on here? I have just over 1.1K followers but I’ve seen a lot of other writers with 5K, 10K, 20K and I’m certain my writing cannot be as fabulous as theirs. Thank you for shutting up my self defeating negative talk by offering a positive prospective on your own work. Oh yeah, and congrats! You keep writing and we’ll keep reading!
