Is it The Algorithm or Do Your Stories Just Suck?

To top writers bitching about numbers I say, “Ha-ha!” whilst pointing

After finishing yet another story from a member of the 10k+ followers club bitching about their views being down, I had to write a rebuttal.

I think most of those guys suck but I follow them for satire material. I find it hilarious that anyone would post a graph showing 300k + views in a month and then bitch about it. You look like an asshole, you know that right?

“But I’ve been here for 4 years and I usually…”

Write the same story over and over? Yes, we know. You haven’t had anything original to say in years. You’re lucky your run lasted as long as it did. Especially with your bitching about only getting 300k views.

I got an idea for a story I know those guys haven’t written about before. The story of Marie Antoinette and the origin of the phrase “Let them eat cake.” Because if they knew the story, they wouldn’t bitching publicly to their fans.

Do they know there’s a ton of good writers on this site who would be over the moon if they got one percent of that many views in a month? Probably not. They only read each others hustleporn according to the story I read.
