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.
