Or, instead, false validation from social media.

It’s legitimate, and I despise saying this, that the much more followers you have, the far more possible I am to pay back awareness to you and your art since others have offered you their thumbs up at some issue. 

And your social feed is much more possible to preserve my consideration if it emphasizes artwork as the centre of your everyday living. Art, artwork, and additional art. Which is what I want to see from an artist who seeks reflection and significant notice.

Nevertheless, we have to acknowledge that there is a wrong perception of validation from social media. I believe Sara Schroeder felt that when she talked about wanting to be “more than an Instagram artist.” She grew her Instagram next promptly and had to consider a move (or two) back again to contemplate what she actually required from her art. Pay attention to my conversation with her in episode 119.

Although it feels excellent to get those people followers, likes, remarks, and shares on social media, at some position you have to surprise what they all signify. 

Who is executing the adhering to, liking, commenting, and sharing? How are all those interactions assisting you in the extended operate? What takes place when you really don’t get enough likes or feedback?

This begs the question: Who are you seeking validation from?
