Don't Worry About It.

There have been a few "why is nobody talking about my stuff" posts on the Hangar recently.  In light of those, I'd like to offer some unsolicited advice.  Yes, I know, the worst kind.  Anyway.  The advice is, don't worry about it.  You never know what will catch the cultural zeitgeist.  Believe me -- I struggle with it too, every time I upload a picture to a hosting service or make a blog post.  I understand that there's a need for validation of the products of our fevered imagination/hard work/brilliant idea/etc.  It makes us feel better when someone says, "Hey, nice job."  But waiting for those compliments to come and hanging on to them afterward, is not a good thing.  That way lies madness.
