More than a year and a half later, it’s clear the New York Times’ paywall is not only valuable, it’s helped turn the paper’s subscription dollars, which once might have been considered the equivalent of a generous tithing, into a significant revenue-generating business. As of this year, the company is expected to make more money from subscriptions than from advertising — the first time that’s happened.
Love the subtle slam on “the common tactics for attracting eyeballs on the Web” later in the piece.
“There’s only so many times you can allow someone to let you down before you can’t handle the disappointment anymore. When things change people change and it doesn’t mean you forget the past, it simply means you try to move on and treasure the memories. Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, it means accepting the things that weren’t meant to be. There’s a point in life when you get tired of chasing everyone, trying to fix everything, but its not giving up, you gotta do what’s right for you.”—decided to sign onto my myspace, and this gem was on my profile.

You know whats sad and pisses me off…. that bigger people have to be depressed all their lives because their afraid that no1 is ever going to love them because of the way they look. It’s SAD that bigger girls that I’ve known and yes even myself have thought about taking our own lives because no one wants us because of our appearance. The media has made it out to be like, we’re FAT because we’re scarfing down burgers and fries everyday, NO thats NOT IT! Some of us actually DO have a medical disorder that causes us to be heavy and we’re “looked down apon” because of it, like we’re disgusting human beings. Well you have that right we are HUMAN BEINGS and we have feelings just like the rest of you, if not more! So the next time you look at a “bigger girl” and shoot a joke at her, think of this!
So I broke up with my girlfriend of 5 years today… Like its a little bittersweet because its so stupid how it went down… And it just proved that she didn’t love me. Like we were going to see Gaga in Chicago and the hotel room was going to cost like $400 so I said it was only right for her to pay half being she was staying in the room too, and she blew up and freaked out on me! And it lead up to our break up… Like I know I was loosing feelings for her because she treated me like shit all the time, but REALLY?!? The only thing now is I’m terrified I wont find anyone who wants me because I’m a “bigger girl” and people think thats gross. Thats really the only reason I find I didn’t leave her sooner.
