The internet could save your life because it allows you to skip the process of being picked. Anyone can be an author, musician, photographer without waiting to partner up with a label or a distributor.
The internet encourages possibility and weirdness.
Your work, even if you're a so-called ‘amafessional,' is doing nothing to get in the way of die-hard professionals who make a living off their art. Just because your creations don't belong in the Louvre shouldn't hold you back from showing others what you made. The market generally favors the marketing budgets anyway.
Mediocrity never hurt anybody. If you really want to go pro, you'll spend the extra time to improve and seek the feedback that makes you better. Everything good comes from practice, trial and error, allowing your creativity to pour and shimmer.
Remember, Van Gogh only sold one painting in his lifetime, and to his brother. With a leap of faith, casual work can turn into your most important work and stand the test of time.
