IS THIS HOW THE BETAS FELT?

  1. Wow, look at all these new listers!
  2. And their lists!
  3. It's, like, a lot.
    You know?
  4. It's great! Let's grow this awesome community!
    (NO TROLLS NO TROLLS NO TROLLS)
  5. But it's also sort of overwhelming.
  6. Okay, I guess I need to budget more time for a mid-day feed refresh.
  7. I need to write something really good now!
    (NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW)
  8. Folks are kind of putting their brand out there.
  9. I've got a nice little list crew. They're funny and awesome and kind and creative.
    And I hope they stick around.
  10. But impressing strangers feels great, too, tbh.
    (LIKE ME LIKE ME LIKE ME LIKE ME I'M GOOD)
  11. But the internet doesn't love me.
    @tombatten said so and he's right.
  12. What's real, even?
  13. Should I be writing a card to my friend who lives half a continent away instead?
  14. Shit, I have a ton of journal entries to grade.
    Betas probably weren't feeling that.
