If you think I was actually asking imgur for money, then you completely missed the point.
I know many people who have tried to politely bring up this issue with the people who run reddit and imgur. One friend even brought up this issue with the actual founder of imgur. The subject generated nothing but apathy. I was hoping that if I said something bold, maybe it would catch their attention.
Talking about money is always a rocky endeavor. Anyone who thinks I do this for money is quite mistaken. At the moment I don’t even make minimum wage. But this is the only occupation I have ever been able to do since my health issues started. I’m not always going to have the support system I have now and I want to be able to support myself some day. And that goal is looking quite promising. I’m very optimistic about it. But it is slow going and roadblocks to any goal will always be frustrating.
Some people seem to think because this involves money I should shut my yapper. I have a message calling me a dick. A few fuck you’s. I was called a giant baby. Maybe I shouldn’t let this bother me. Maybe I should just accept this reality and be content that I have as much success as I do. But this happens to so many people. Some of them are really struggling to make a name for themselves. That bothers me. So, from time to time I may talk about it.
