I can definitely understand where you’re coming from… But let me offer you a piece of advice — don’t interact with the expectation of them returning the favor. This not only frees you up but it makes the energetic exchange lighter and easier, therefore it will be more likely to bring about what you want.

I don’t ever comment or clap hoping they will acknowledge my work—I do it because I love their post or have something to share. I do it for myself! Sometimes they check my stuff out, sometimes not.

That being said, if I comment on someone’s posts multiple times and they don’t respond, I definitely move on. At that point, it doesn’t feel good and I don’t need one-sided relationships in my life. But to date, that’s only been one person, and I’ve been on Medium for several years. Most folks respond at some point.

However, I can’t say that I’ve ever expected or even thought about then reading my stuff. It’s not for everyone!

Plus, there are variables like—are they interested in what I write about? If they’re in the same genre, do they actually want to read more? Are the comments I’m leaving thoughtful enough to intrigue them? Etc.

Regardless, if I were you, I’d interact for yourself, interact when it feels right and simply enjoy that! Let go of the expectations and see what happens. 🙏🏽
