I’m gonna offer a counterpoint. I had a comment go nearly viral, a little under a year ago. It still gets hits almost daily. And that’s nice. It feels good anyway. But, the important thing is to write what matters to you. If you’re in it for the money, you’re not really being the authentic you. Eventually, that will come through in your writing. Not that any of your suggestions are wrong. It’s perfectly okay to milk the notoriety when it hits, but stay humble. You came here to say something that matters to you. Keep doing that. In the end, that’s what people will remember. And it’s what you’ll be most proud of doing.
