I don’t get this need/want thing. If you choose to move people, connect to our hearts without expectation of results or manipulating the algorithms.

I have not yet written my own article, but purely by connecting with people whose articles resonated with me, and responding, I now have 19 followers.

Each time I get notified of a new follower, my spirit soars. Not because of the numbers but because what I wrote meant something to someone.

That feeling is immeasurable.
