Hey Raam, thanks for writing for
all of us me 🙂
As soon as an author’s focus moves from the content to how it’s perceived (is my content or work well-read, well-subscribed, famous, etc?) then it’s hard to make it genuine.
It happens elsewhere too.. I first noticed this in those popularity contests on TV: it’s always those with the least skills and the biggest desire to become famous that leave the judges in an angry manner, while those with the skills simply walk in there and shine (i.e., they genuinely have something to offer and they know it… becoming famous is then a natural result).
It’s a general principle I guess.
