Great point, Audrey. We made such a fuss about wanting claps that some people may want to “show appreciation” even if they know it won’t factor into compensation. If that’s the case, I think they missed the point that we first and foremost want to be read!

Is it too much to ask for two out of three — reads plus applause or money?? Apparently it is! 🤦🏾‍♀️😩
