I understand the sentiment but I’m not embarrassed to promote myself and my work. Art is my passion but it’s also my job. I had tumblr years ago with 750k organic followers but I deleted it cuz I was getting death threats. When I signed up again yesterday I paid to have a post promoted. Art is my career, why shouldn’t I promote myself? And guess what? It worked. This post is doing well and I got a nice little boost of followers. 🥰
Do…. people not understand that Corporations stealing our data to advertise their product and an independent artist investing a few dollars to promote their work and gain an audience are… two entirely different things????
Anyway this is funny as heck.
