So, days before I launch my big news that would hopefully help animators on YouTube, I came across, what I suppose is a competitor, called Brave.com (here’s the link because I am an idiot https://brave.com/index/) on Philip DeFranco’s Monday video.
What seems to be different, is that they seem like users download it as a browser and websites can sign up with Brave.com when people view those sites that get paid by a subscription. I’m going to be honest with you, I usually need to read something a few times in order to fully understand it.
What seems to be the same is banding together, especially for animators. I’m not going to lie there is a part of me that is really insecure about it. Let’s be honest, if you invest time into something you find worthwhile, you feel like a like failure when it looks like it’s going to collapse. No duh right? So what do you?
Well, the easiest thing to do would be to quit and delve into depression. I would be a be a HUGE hypocrite if I said that I have never done this more than once. However, I don’t want to do that.
I have a weird theory about life, what if we as people are naturally inclined to keep going, like Wile E. Coyote continuing to try and catch the Roadrunner? Look at babies when they learn to crawl and walk. They don’t give up when they fall, they try again and again.
Truthfully, I don’t know and I’m still going to keep going. If this upcoming enterprise does fail, I am glad there is something out there that might help animators. That’s the big reason why I wanted to do this in the first place was to help animators since YouTube’s machinations have widely screwed us over. Anyways I got to go.
Stay hustling my friends.
