I went from 0 to 221k followers on TikTik in 7 months — some thoughts.

Before we tuck into this, I want to be clear. This is not a “how-to,” per se. It is me providing context and my thoughts on why an account featuring a middle-aged dude making olden time-y sandwiches from old cookbooks has blown up as quickly as it has. There might be stuff you can learn but I promise nothing, sorry. And yes, 220,000 is not a million but it ain’t nothing.
