I have recently been told I have several fans. This is new to me, and sort of embarrassing.
My opinions and writing on dozens of issues have gotten the occasional like, or even several. I've had "followers," etc. But for someone to send me a message telling me they are a fan of what I do? That is new to me!
They aren't a fan of my humor. Not a fan of my religious or political or cultural commentary, not a fan of any real or serious stuff I have done...
... they are fans of the posts I make on a BDSM message board. They are women, all of them, fawning over my posts. I had only been there 2 months, and never had a BDSM relationship in my life. But they say they follow my posts and hope I submit idea to them. Very weird.
