In some ways I really think Ramon is right, but I also understand Evrina’s point of view. People often want to help others before they take care of themselves, which is a very good, human, way to be. It doesn’t always serve well over time though. Ideally you should lean into charity after you are in a stable place in your life, but it seems like people tend to get there & then live in fear of falling back into poverty to the point that they want to wall themselves off in a safe fortress. I understand all of these feelings & I’m not 100% sure which one is the best. It’s probably some balanced mix. I’ve found that mixing stuff like this gets you the best results for the longest time. Evrina & Ramon are kind of the extremes that cancel each other out. Or maybe end up in a more stable middle ground.
The blog under the blog has always accidentally caught people by surprise. It’s original purpose was to present information on the homepage that wasn’t time sensitive. The rise of social media kind of made it superfluous, but now social media is falling away & the secondary blog seems like It might actually become useful again since Twitter isn’t the powerhouse it was half a decade ago. At this moment I’m just making this post so that the big image posts won’t appear on every comic page. It’ll just be easy to load text. Job done. Now I can go about doing some other stuff I need to do.
