It's interesting to watch myself try to figure out how to talk on here without the weight of so many followers or . I feel light

@laurahudson it's really nice to not have a dozen people waiting in the wings to jump on to a comment.

@esdin yeah once you hit a certain critical mass of followers, every single goddamn thing you say is going to have a certain distribution curve of responses: the high five, the holier-than-thou, the UM ACTUALLY, the person who repeats what you said back to you, the person who thinks they have something to add but they don't, and on and on. It's wearying sometimes to know it's going to follow everything you say, and then maybe you start saying less

@laurahudson before Jenn quit, she would post something like "What do folks use for writing on their iPads?" and get 50 replies with the top google result from people who didn't actually write.
