Here are some questions for you?

  • How do you feel when you post something and no one comments?. Few likes and fewer reactions; few views too?.

  • You spent time, energy and sweat to make a video, write an article but after publishing it, you get just 2 to 3 views?.

Which do you prefer seeing when you click on your published article on read.cash?:

  • Likes?

  • Tips (upvotes)?

  • Comments?

  • Comments and upvotes with likes?

  • Comments and likes atleast?

  • Upvotes and likes, no comments?.

Well if that question was directed to me, I'd pick all the options that has "comment" in it.

Have you ever felt you aren't good enough?.

That excruciating feeling that knocks you down into belittling or finding it hard to see or believe in your capabilities.

Well, Viola!

I've been there, and one of the reasons why I'm writing this article today, is because I'm still there.

I once wrote about the power of "feedbacks," it always feel good to appreciate or constructively criticize the work of others. Just show your presence, make the person know and feel that someone actually sees what he/she does.

But...

Come to think of it, is it just all about finding the right audience?.

I mean people keep speaking about finding the right audience, but the question is this:

  • Where and...

  • ...how do we find them?

  • Is it that easy to locate the right audience?.

I need to be enlightened on the aforementioned questions, please if you have answers, the comment box is all yours.

A quick story.

Towards the end of last year, I decided to become a dropshipper for a lovely fashion company: "Mobis Couture and Consult."

Just to earn few bucks as a side income in addition to my salary as a teacher back then. I started posting her wares on my status.

But guess what?

It was just a very close friend of mine that patronized me.

The rest of my friends and those on my CL kept arguing down the price, complaining about how the dresses were just too expensive for their pockets to afford.

I got frustrated anyways and stopped.

Now, my point here is this:

My audience were the ones that didn't see value in what I was selling.

That they didn't see value in what I sold doesn't mean that those dresses had no value.

Mobis Couture makes her money on a regular and that's because the audience she has; knows the value of what she's selling.

What am I driving at?

If you keep posting on your status, or wherever you might be posting, without anybody's reaction or comments.

Then you should know this:

  • It's either you don't have and have not found the right audience.

  • It's either you have ghost admirers; who would say nothing even when they love what you do.

  • You might prolly need to cross or reevaluate yourself...

But...

It shouldn't make you feel you're not good enough, your audience might just be like those audience I had, when I was a dropshipper. They just might be the one not seeing value in what you do.

That they don't see any value in it, doesn't mean it doesn't have value.

You're good enough dear, one day the world would notice you, just keep at it, don't let the absent views of others make you feel less of yourself.

You're doing well dear, just keep at it and improve more on yourself. Someday the whole world would notice you.

And that's how another topic; still relating to this, just crossed my mind. I'll write on that in tomorrow's article

Till we meet again in my next article and in yours.

Thanks for reading.

Very encouraging... Honestly, I was just wondering around and reading random articles and then I found one with title "My journey on read.cash" (or something like that) by @Phavour, A new user, who mentioned you, saying, "She really do give me lots of hopes and motivation through her article", of course, all articles, but I know that the most admired article was "This one". Good work. Keep writing.

Stay happy, Stay blessed

when we publish articles, of course, the desire of a publisher or writer is that they read and argue with articles that have been published, but sometimes our expectations do not match reality, so we will feel frustrated and bored, that's what happened to some users and I've also felt it. but one thing we must know is that being a writer or blogger we must also know what the audience market is like and when we learn about likes and what they like then one important point we have got and one thing I also learned is if we If you want other people to act on our articles, then start acting on theirs too.

As for the 1st part question, I'd prefer to have comments and like at least. The upvotes and subscribe are just bonuses and those other feelings I am feeling it too righy now. Also I can relate to the quick story since I got a little business and finding the right customers matter. Because those we knew personally wont patronize it and will just mumble and ask for discounts and others. While those who see its worth really get from their pocket to pay for how it worth.

I've been in your shoes at least the part of not feeling good enough, and the part of not having the right audience, even here on read cash, I hardly get beyond 2 comments 4likes, and little upvote most times, it doesn't really bring me down anymore maybe cause I'm used to disappointment and all that, but it does suck, I know I write weird not too relatable stuff most times, but c'mon it can't be that bad😅. Anyway if I were to choose I'd pick options with comments as well, the comments make ones work feel appreciated and that people can actually relate to what you wrote or at the very least enjoy what you wrote... Anyway its all good we keep moving forward.

That feeling of not being good enough happens to all of us and most times they're depressing. The feeling of doing something without receiving the expected feedback can be very discouraging especially on a platform like this. But then you've reminded us that we're good enough irrespective of what others think and do.

I'm happy I read this article this morning. A perfect dose of encouragement and inspiration for the start of a new day.

If I had to pick one, I would pick comments. I like to hear other people's opinion about what I have written or discussed. Perhaps, those on your CL saw the value of what you were selling and genuinely couldn't afford the price, thus...

So many times I have also thought about but at some point, I had to praise myself cos I know I was trying. I will also pick comments, like and upvotes if I am to pick. That comment and like matters gan cos it shows my work is generally accepted. Just like a few days back when my article met different people in the state that they are, I was so happy.

Yes. I used to feel like that too when I started dropshipping, a lot of people will view my status and yet no turn up, not even one. But as time goes I learnt that it takes time to gain recognition. That's how I didn't give up. I later realised there are secret admirers too as you said.
