two days late but did this trick you is the question
listen i know everyone loves yelling about how followers and likes impact your life and all but,, dude,,,, it's a coding app,,,,
followers and likes are meant to encourage you, not to discourage you. likes aren't a number you compare with others', they're a sign that people honestly loved your project. followers aren't armies that one commands at their will, they're people who are honestly into your work and want to see more of your projects.
competition is fun, sure, but so is taking it more slowly. try not to turn everything into a competition, alright?
