This is a chapter from the book A Lesser Photographer.
You don’t need a certain number of followers, a passive income, a monetization strategy, or “1000 true fans” to justify sharing your work.
All you need is 1.
1 person liked my writing enough to hire me, which has led to a twenty-year career as a professional writer.
1 person liked my dating profile (which is most definitely a writing and photography project) enough to eventually marry me and start a family.
1 fan could be your next business partnership, employer, or spouse.
1 fan justifies your next book, blog, and podcast.
1 fan can give your work all the meaning it ever needs, especially if you’re that 1 fan.
