I hereby solemnly vow to leave feedback on EVERY single piece of content that I view for more than two seconds. Kudos, a comment, a like, some kind of encouragement.
Because I think there is a dissonance between people who view content and people who create content.
People who view content don’t believe that there is any reason to leave a comment because the author won’t care much anyways, or it isn’t that important, or they have x amount of comments already.
Well, let me tell you something. I refresh my email about every 10 minutes to see whether I have any new feedback on my fanfics. And it wouldn’t matter how many comments I had already gotten on any of my fics. I treat each one as though it is the first.
Feedback is truly the most important ingredient in my life as an author, and I cherish every person who takes the time to type out a comment.
Seriously, button mash on your keyboard, give something like ‘This is awesome’ or pick out 400 lines to comment on, we don’t care. We love you if you take the time to say anything.
Because that means that you care.
