I literally could have not written it any better than this, this hits home. I think that even then, Scratch isn’t about popularity. It’s about creating and sharing new ideas with the community. Getting popular isn't about hundreds of followers or getting 3rd on trending; it's to have a community like you. You could be popular with 10 followers, or hated with 10,000. Simply be friendly, make good things, and participate in the community, and you'll have some following.
