Fear of The Wrath Of Paul just made me clap for this story.😳 Clapping usually makes no sense. Everyone has their own system. Some writers consider 1 clap an insult. Some writers say you should clap once any time you read a story to encourage writers. So apparently 1 clap is an encouraging insult.

What I don’t understand is if a story of mine gets curated, my story usually get a big boost in views and reads, but not many more claps or fans. It’s still the usually regular readers doing the claping. Those 200 extra Views and 100 extra Reads from curation (on a good day) typically only results in about 6 extra Fans.

I guess the rest of the readers were looking for Big Ideas And Important Stories and left disappointed.
