@austin_walker wow, hi, i just read some of your mentions on the bird site (curious about the response you were getting to recent stuff) and *i* feel terrible, idk how/why you decide to keep it up over there. i guess that's you though. hope the wp forums & places like here help remind that there are lots of people who want to genuinely engage. keep up the great work & take care
@drcat If I stopped keeping it up over there I would lose my career because without my audience, I'm a much less valuable asset.
@austin_walker you don't think people would stick around regardless? podcasts, twitch, the site? well, i suppose you have the numbers to know how much your twitter(s) drive traffic.
@drcat The people already sticking around would stick around, for sure, but no business is happy with a plateau. If WPR stopped growing, it would be considered a failure. And in 2018, social media is the de facto way of promoting growth
@austin_walker I get that I'm not saying anything you don't already know. I guess maybe I should stop saying "wow why/how/what" and start saying it's really admirable that in that situation you continue to fight for good things you believe in. cheers.
@drcat Appreciate it! Hopefully I can keep it up.
