I very much agree with you, Janet. I think the old adage 'people only want you when they can get something out of you' rings true here. Those people aren't encouraging anyone else's efforts, they aren't actually interested in what their followers think, they are only interested in having their own work praised. In a way, it's self-defeating, because people can see right through the whoriness (is whoriness a word? well it is now) and selfishness. Surely, there is nothing wrong with promoting your artistic endeavours, but that is all some people are interested in doing - promoting themselves. I am glad to know that you are not like that - You engage your followers, keep them up to date on current projects and share your personal experiences. There is so much more depth to what you do than can be said about some people. I greatly admire you for that. I find it amazing how much effort you put into your work and how much of your time you give without receiving the same in return. All this while facing bitter criticism from your detractors, and somehow you still remain committed and prolific. People who say they simply don't have enough time to engage their followers online are, of course, full of it. There's a quote I like that goes something like this - “Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.” - I'd like to add Janet Boyer to that list too :)
Pretty :)
