RK Milholland’s Plea: Help Me Quit My Job!

Milholland has a funny rant up at his website right now that makes a pitch to his readers to help him raise enough money to quit his job and devote his time to Something Positive and other webcomic projects:

So I spend a lot of time just working. This wears one down. So do the aggrivating and condescending emails. No, I’m not talking about people emailing me to say, “You misspelled a word,” or, “there’s a broken link on the site.” That’s cool. I appreciate those people. I’m talking about emails that go on and on about my “apparent inability to place letters correctly” and make bold claims like, “I’m one of those freaks who is just about incapable of making or overlooking these kinds of errors, so if you’d like to make use of my preternatural English abilities.” Both are real quotes from people who “love the comic in spite of [my] inability to spell.” (Another quote).

So, I’m going to make you an offer. If you can lighten my workload, I’ll go out of my way to see to it the spelling – and the update schedule – improve. On both S*P and New Gold Dream.
