Andrew Sullivan is still doing that begathon about "keeping this site alive" as if it costs a great deal of money to run a blog, even with the traffic he receives. I might send him some money if my shit-decector wasn't ringing like a car-alarm right now. I don't like the pitch he's throwing.
Anybody who sends that begging asshole money either really worships his ass or doesn't understand a goddam thing about "bandwidth." If the asswipe was honest enough to say, "I WANT TO MAKE MONEY FROM BLOGGING," I might send him $100 dollars. But I believe that he is being dishonest and acting like a goddam time-share condo salesman with all his whining.
Andrew, fucking admit it. If you didn't get get a penny out of anybody, your blog would continue. It ain't gonna quit. It ain't gonna shut down. You just decided to be some kind of Amway distributor with what you do.
This kind of whining really pisses me off. I wish that every good blogger could make money off blogging. Hell, I would LOVE to make money off my blog. What a wonderful world this would be.
But it's NOT a wonderful world and the things you whine about are RIDICULOUS to anyone who blogs WITHOUT ASKING FOR A GODDAM DIME FROM ANYONE. Andrew, I hope you become a fucking millionaire. Lie your pathetic ass off along the way. Whatever works.
Go on with your begging. Meanwhile, I'll go to my day job EVERY DAY and post MORE than five gems of wisdom on my blog in my "spare" time. "Professional writer," my ass.
Andrew... BITE ME! I wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire.
