Giving Claps

What’s your philosophy?

After reading Roz Warren’s article about claps, I began to see claps in a different way. What are they really?

Are they my judgement about a piece? How pompous is that?

Maybe my way of saying how much I liked the piece?

A way for telling the writer, hey I read your story?
