The long answer is that the pursuit of the status helps you be a better writer. If you’re a seasoned writer, this won’t matter. But if you’re a beginner like me, you’ll be more motivated to produce quality content frequently. One of the unforeseen benefits of wanting to be heard was that I also learnt to promote myself, something which I’ve not always been very comfortable with. The journey has definitely been beneficial to my learning and development.
