The opportunity to reach a lot of people, sometimes quickly, is one hell of a reward.

You're right @ben - there's a lot of good feelings and reward in simply connecting with others or even peer validation.

This is a great reward for a community with lots of traffic. Im curious if you got similar reactions when DEV had less than 10k members?

I guess the same can be true for smaller communities with very active members and lively discussions. Like id personally be excited to get 100 views + 20-30 comments on an article within 24hrs.

Just getting one tweet often went just as far. That official @-mention goes a long way to making people feel like they had an impact with their post, even when the views were small.

Absolutely! Or when you find out a member has their Forem profile URL in their Twitter bio 🀯

These little wins really do give you the confidence and persistence to keep going even when it looks like nobody is watching.
