Three years ago, I realized that there was a need for something else, so I (re)planted the seeds of a media organization and hopefully it will grow into something substantial. I realized what I had forgotten and should not have forgotten. If you don't own it, no matter how hard you work for it, it still isn't yours. You can be kicked out or fired at the whim of some paper pusher. You can be betrayed based on lies.
So have your OWN thing. I Reads You is my own thing, but I want to share it with readers, writers, and artists. Hopefully, I will not fire and betray. Happy Birthday.
