Bonus post: Bill Day and “self-plagiarism”
There’s a lot going on right now! This is the third bonus post this week!
So, here’s the deal. Ordinarily, I’d post this kind of thing here as members-only content, but the truth of the matter is that I have a personal connection to the story. That personal connection was the reason I never posted about Bill Day’s historic IndieGoGo campaign here in the first place.
Please… keep that in mind the next time I have to moderate someone here on self-promotion. I hold myself to the same standard — heck, a stricter one. I could have easily rationalized posting about this fund-rasier here, saying that it held the potential to be the first time a political cartoonist used crowd-sourcing to fund his annual slary. But the fact of the matter is that Bill Day holds a special place in my esteem, and I wouldn’t have been able to convice me that the post wasn’t self-promotion-by-proxy.
