TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY STAR AFTERMATH TOUGH TIMES: FORMER COLUMNIST YAEL ABOUHALKAH TAKING DONATIONS!!!
Nobody said Kansas City blogging life was easy.
Accordingly . . . Because we direct most of the traffic to this former columnists fledgling online efforts . . .
OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY NOTES THAT FORMER KANSAS CITY STAR COLUMNIST YAEL ABOUHALKAH IS NOW TAKING ONLINE DONATIONS!!!
On his front page and bloggy footer . . .
Some call it crowdfunding others are more skeptical.
The limit is set at $5 to avoid the appearance of impropriety . . . But what it does reveal is that career options after life at the Kansas City Star are extremely limited for some of their highest profile writers. Apparently, not everybody can continue to make headlines and strip club visits like Jason Whitlock.
And speaking of strippers . . . There's nothing wrong at all with crowdfunding or working for tips. Over the course of this blog we've tried more than a few (failed) schemes to achieve profitability and a donation effort was BRIEFLY a part of it. Nowadays, TKC is paid per comment by the Illuminati.
Brief quibble . . . A lot of bloggers work YEARS to get to the point where they ask for donations. Like it or not, TKC knows blogging and this is kind of an arrogant move and a bit of a digital faux pas from the Kansas City blogging noob Yael Abouhalkah.
Nevertheless . . . Tonight we link back to Yael not only in hopes that maybe a few generous souls might donate a fiver to his website but also to offer a chilling look at the future of the Kansas City newspaper game for all those who fear the future of journalism.
