Creator vs Spectator

I find it funny how my most popular posts, are actually just comments on other people’s posts. I have received more likes for some of my comments than I have for any of my posts.

Since I’m not playing the game of having the most friends or followers, despite the dopamine injection every new friend brings, it seems some people here just have a lot of followers and you make one witchy comment when you’re in a good mood and you get 200 people virtually smiling with their finger as they click like.

I only comment when I’m in a good mood or if the post is either worthy of a comment or I have a punchline in mind that I think is funny. Apparently others do too.


I used to think commenting on posts with 5,000 or 10,000 other comments was a waste of time in the original poster would never see or react to my comment. More recently I realized there is real life in the comments sections. Although the original poster might not have the time or energy to read through 10,000 comments, other people see your comment and entire debates can arise.

It is a whole aspect of the internet Fame and follower world that I had not previously thought much about. For people that don’t like to create or aren’t creative enough to get their own following, they can find joy and friendship as well as anger and enemies all within the comment section.

I’m happy to participate wherever I can find those virtual smiles that come when you click the heart or the thumbs up.

Thank you.
