Mike, I got invited, even though I only have… wait, wtf? I have 1.7K followers? Medium tells me when I have more than nine people clapping for me and they never mention when I go over three digits of followers? What kind of —

Sorry, sorry, FOCUS, anyway… yes, I got invited too, and I think I’ll sit it out for now. I don’t need the money and I get more ego-boo reward getting Responses and Reco — Claps. Plus if I start doing this for pay, that means I have an ethical obligation to my clients to keep producing. It’s the reason I never posted my programs as shareware, back in the day; if someone pays me, I owe them a certain quality of product, IMHO. I’d rather write for myself and then share it. Just my $0.02.
