Hey. HEY. Listen up, people doing hobby stuff.
If you share your work, it's okay to want to get paid for it.
Even if it's stuff you give away in other forms or to individuals. Even if it's built on the free work of others.

We all need to get by. Giving stuff away is great. It's not *required.*

After a sick day full of doing not much beyond eating soup I feel better, but I'm also coughing more.
So, net wash?
