i will start by saying
when i get new information or feel that there is something useful and worth sharing i share!
supporter vs the fan
a fan is someone who loves your work when everyone knows you, when your popular and the world is screaming your name and though necessary they might be temporary. i have learned just recently, that when the smoke clears and the thing that got you all the attention (bad or good) stops “fans” may clear out but the supporter is always there!
your supporters may not always agree with your art, hell they may out right hate it, but you know regardless to what they are in your corner pushing for you. Lauryn Hill just came to mind. one of my recent tweets/updates said “everything an artist does has a specific reason feeling or meaning behind it… the question is does the audience really care”. your supporters get deeper thoughts behind the work, your fan may just want you to keep it hot. Beyonce comes to mind.. it ends up being a state of “roboticism” or doing and not thinking to please people.
how many followers do you have? how many are retweeting about your projects, helping you stay encouraged, ready to tell people about you based on their belief in you?

i am also supporting eric roberson for being a smooth lover of women, staying true to his art, developing and focusing on the bigger picture!
