Patreon Blog Takeover: Callahan's Crosstime Stable (Brumby Run) · 4:14pm 5 hours ago

This is one of those cases where I have to paste in the original request.

YouTube followup: the Barcast subscription drive. · 3:27am 18 hours ago

In the short form: a few FIMFic people are trying to drive a pony-related channel to the critical 1,000 subscribers number, which is now necessary in order to have their videos remain monetized after February 20th. (I first saw this through FOME.) This channel is The Barcast, which includes among its content:

* Author interviews (extremely extensive ones: often an hour or more)
* Story readings

The poor stay poor: rambling about YouTube and the upcoming small-channel demonetization. · 7:17pm Wednesday

Perhaps there's an argument to be made, one which says the system was never sustainable. The concept of paying everyone, regardless of what they were producing... that couldn't possibly last. And to a large degree, the concept has been falling apart since the moment it was introduced, one piece at a time. But still, YouTube started by saying everyone who posted content on the site was their partner. They threw that term around a lot. They still do. It was in the update to

Patreon Blog Takeover: Sedimentary Layers: Earth Pony Public Magic & The Cornucopia Effect (Blackbriar) · 7:40pm Tuesday

Ponies forget. Even without centuries of careful storytelling, progressive distortions built up until only the barest tip of truth can be seen poking through the soil, ponies forget.

Knowing exactly where I lost it isn't much of a consolation · 7:05pm January 7th

*sigh*

I'm trying to tell myself that it could have been worse. I'd spent the majority of the balance on that gift card. There was an appreciable -- useful -- if I go into details, I'm going to start depressing myself again -- amount left on it. But at least it was down to 20% or so. Better than still having the full value present when it was lost.

Football is a funny game... · 12:02pm January 7th

...and that was the moment I realized it was Andy Reid, in the playoffs, with a halftime lead, coaching the Chiefs, at Arrowhead.
