When I started this I didn’t know what I was doing, and I still don’t. The first time I got an email that someone was following me, I thought Why?
I didn’t understand the tagging and I didn’t know who was looking at my posts, and it didn’t matter. It was like dropping a token into a dark well.
But as I got more followers, the well talked back. There were thumbnails, voices, faces coming out of the dark. And it raised the stakes for my writing: it’s given me a cause, by knowing there’s someone at the bottom of the well.
