A lot of these people have ended up with a much smaller audience than myself… despite the fact that they really are pandering to the crowd (telling people whatever it is that they want to hear, etc.).
I certainly never imagined that I'd end up with a larger audience than Wayne Hsiung or Paul Bashir.
Both of them have had millions of dollars (in donations) pass through their hands in the last few years —and yet, really, nobody is interested in whatever it is they have to say next.
And I, also, am not interested in hearing what they have to say next, to be perfectly honest.
So, yes, it is interesting to try to calibrate your measurements for success and failure —when you're promoting a message as profoundly unpopular as I happen to be.
