Do you shoot photos for self-satisfaction or recognition?

This is a question for hobbyist photographers (or enthusiasts). Probably the mix of both, but I'd like to hear your take on self-satisfaction v.s. recognition.

Personally, until not too long ago, I was aspiring to be noticed/recognized for my photography (did blogging, guest posting, released ebooks, etc.), but nowadays I kind of gave up and shooting for my own pleasure (just post photos on my website and not sharing much on social media anymore), as I got tired of trying without success. That said, photography is still my number one hobby, so I'm more than happy to continue shooting for my self-satisfaction, though.
