Influencing the S**T out of you (probs)

What do you think of the word “Influencer?” Seriously. Because I hate it – it just rubs me up the wrong way and I lose my life boner immediately if someone refers to themselves as a human of influence. Am I being silly? Or am I jealous as I am more flatulence less influence? I have really thought about it recently as my Instagram numbers sky rocketed with the help of a kind Mother of Daughters shout out, where I saw a 2k rise almost overnight in my ‘following’. Since then I have been contacted a lot by brands and PR companies wanting ‘in’ on my audience aka ‘my reach’ and ‘my reach’ is surely measured by the numbers that I can ‘possibly influence’? I don’t always even get referred to by name, the email will just arrive ‘Dear Influencer’ which gives me shivers, because who am I to influence you? You’re probably just here because of my ‘funny’ insta stories or you’re curious about Asha and are waiting for my version of what happened there (FYI – it is never coming – I still don’t know) or maybe you have been here since the beginning and you just like my teeth? (a comment I genuinely get a LOT). Either way thanks. Thank you for following, for liking and for letting me influence the S**T out of you…probably. I mean seriously you best get ready to be influenced.

    Do not ever question your right to be of influence. Why not you? You are strong, you kind, you are funny, (you is important), you are a producer of hashtag interior goals. If someone has something to say and thinks you can say it better – go get yours. Influence on mofo. I agree one should never refer to themselves as a human of influence, I would prefer Influence Artist.

What do you think?
