The article that I chose to review is titled “I Just Gave Up $4000 Per Month to Keep My Freedom of Speech”. This article is stating that MMM got cut $4000 from chase because they didn’t like the banner that he was using on his site that had the word “Badassity” in it. They felt that the banner expressed inappropriate content, and felt that it needed to be changed. MMM responded by saying that he didn’t feel that his banner had any inappropriate content, and that he was just being honest and himself, and if they insist on removing the word from his banner then they’d have to part ways, and they did actually end up parting ways with MMM.
One strength that I found on this blog is that MMM was very adamant on his position towards the subject, and refused to let someone take away his freedom of speech even if it meant losing that large amount of money per month. He said that “If I’m willing to make my own writing shittier just to comply to a corporate monitoring program, then why not just go right back to an office job? After all, I could also make $20,000 unneeded dollars a month as an Engineering manager,” This to me shows that he has a very strong opinion about the request that Chase made. I really didn’t find any weaknesses, as I felt that he was standing up for himself, and the article was very brief and he explained why he felt the way that he did.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this article and I liked the way his writing style wasn’t censored, and he said what he wanted to say. I think that this is why his blog might be so popular because he is just being himself, and that really shows in his blog posts.I feel that people who are in low income, and looking for ways ti improve their lifestyle would follow and love this blog.
