I got the title idea from this quote:
“Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible.”
— M. C. Escher
As I’ve been talking with more people about this crazy idea of ours, I’m becoming increasingly aware of the absurdity of it. This gives me all the more reason to go for it! Every day will require discipline, and some days we will feel like just not giving everything we have. But, I just keep thinking about the alternative, which is to just work in a safe and secure job and spend my life wondering if I could have done it.
One thing I know for sure: we need the support of a huge community of people in order to make this work. We will be relentlessly pursuing the attention of our friends and family on social media for the next few months. We will try not to be obnoxious.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP!
You probably already know about our GoFundMe campaign. Not everyone can help financially, and that’s fine (thanks to those who are helping financially!).
But, if you have a YouTube account, you can help a lot. Simply subscribe to our channel (link below), and share our channel with others. Our goal is to be at 1000 subscribers and have 4000 hours of viewing time by the end of June. This will allow our channel to be monetized. We are basically starting from scratch, so we have a long way to go.
If our content is good enough and we work hard enough, hopefully the momentum will build and we will be well on our way to funding our journalism business.
SO EXCITING!!! Thanks so much for your support!
