Yeah. Seems like a lose lose. I do OK in the partner program, in that it’s become a significant part of my income, and it would suck for me if it stopped. But besides a handful of personal friends, I don’t tell people what I make for two reasons.

  1. They would see they are making less than me, and they would feel shitty.
  2. They would reveal they are making oodles more than me, and I would feel shitty.

So in the interest of nobody feeling shitty (particularly yours truly) I keep my mouth shut.

Some people would say it’s the only thing in the universe I can keep my mouth shut about. ;-)
