The Price of Fame
Blogging is my own sad little vice. I usually don't announce my less-than-pulitzer writings to my friends and I make no real effort to publicize the depths of my personal depavity. I am always pleased and honored that people drop by to read, but I realize that there are folks out there who think deeper thoughts and write better thought than your humble correspondent.
So imagine my amusement when this popped up. Now, the Huff post is an interesting little play. Rich and connected, Ariana put together a media powerhouse by playing her connections against the pathetic need for attention of bloggers. Bloggers who craved fame ate crap on a plate publicly hoping that someone with money would notice them and give them money. They sat up late, beating on their laptops in an effort to get noticed. Ariana never promised them anything but a platform to rage from.
Now that she has made some serious coin putting together her connections and access to a server farm, they feel that they should get a part of the pie.
Piss off. She never promised you jack. You wrote for her in hopes that someone else would start paying you. When no one felt your screed was worthy of coin, you went after Ariana. You are a bunch of dumbasses with limited understanding and aspirations well beyond your limited abilities. You got everything that you deserved.
Hope you have fun with your lawyer bills
