Excellent question!

Probably because Ev Williams places very little value on the kind of writing I do.

Yesterday, for instance, over 700 people read my work.

Which was thrilling.

What was I paid for that?

Six dollars.

Not so thrilling.

As long as writers and artists are paid only according to how long it takes to read our work instead of how much readers enjoy it, short form writers and artists will be paid very little.

Cartoonists have it even worse than humorists.
