Sharing - A Double Edged Sword

I love to share work. I started an instagram page just so that I could share work. I could really care less about the likes, but I do hope that people connect with my art. I know that getting likes is part of how to get seen on social media, so I do try to post often so I can find my people. I want people to connect to me and my personality and my sense of humour. I want them to marvel and enjoy something that I created just for them.

On the one hand, it helps you to find where you fit in and how the community around you and your work helps propel you forward.

On the other hand, it feels like you're fighting for attention (which doesn't feel great), and doing things for popularity (which also doesn't feel good).

So, how do you find your people without getting caught up in the hoopla? This question I don't have an answer to, but I can tell you what I've been trying to do.

I've been trying to form genuine connections with people and putting my blinders on so I don't get caught up in what else is going on. Hopefully, this is all it takes, but if not, that okay too.
