Own your shit, Tumblr users. I occasionally click through to the people that like or comment on posts and I see a lot of “here’s my shitty drawings” or “I made this awful music” and so on. Stop it. You made that shit, you’re probably into that shit, be into that shit. Don’t downplay the fact that you make stuff. Just make stuff! Make it and be into it and if people don’t like it, tell them to fuck off (or tell them that that’s OK, it’s not for them in the first place).
It’s OK to like the stuff you made! It’s even OK to want other people to like the stuff you made! Permission granted to be into yourself (if you need that)! Just… try not to become an egomaniac about that, I guess.
That’s my stupid opinion about it, anyway.
