Plain Jane: “To flatter and follow others, without being flattered and followed in turn, is but a state of half enjoyment.”
-Jane Austen in her letters
How did Jane understand blogging and social media all the way back in the nineteenth century? I suppose before “like” “follow” “share” “repin” and RSS feeds, people still loved to be approved of, popular, and admired. Ah Jane, you know people never change.
