Creative industries are rife with survivorship bias.
Trying to make a living as a creator is a risky proposition. Taking on student loans is a massive gamble. Quitting your job to pursue creating can be disastrous.
Think carefully before you leap without a safety net.

We're changing how many blogs are included with a subscription. Show more
This will let you choose exactly how many blogs you need under one account, whether that's 2, 10, or 35 — but additional blogs past the number included with your plan will cost $12 per year, each.
So if you want to lock in the current number of blogs included with Casual or Pro, now is a great time to upgrade, as you'll be grandfathered in. These changes will go into effect in the next day or so.

While I get that people are miffed about reduced coverage for events, I'm actually a fan of focusing the attention on a smaller number of high stakes events.
Further, with the Pro League having guaranteed spots in both Arena and Paper Championships, it means that they aren't pressured to participate in them actively, which makes the final rounds for most of these events like cool "boss battles".
I like my takes the way I like my wings. 🔥
