@sandipb I'm well aware of the financial burden of too many subscriptions, but I also need to provide for my family. This is why I've chosen to make all my posts free on #Substack for the first few days. People who follow me can read everything at $0 cost, and can pay to support me if they can, and access archives if they want to. Seems like a good compromise.

Also, there's a lot of free stuff on YouTube. Sounds like it'd be good to create a directory of free #Obsidian resources. 🧵 2 of 2

My latest #poem, 'Escape This Nonsense', mines the ancient tradition of nonsense literature, taking some of its less fantastical elements. It’s not bedtime reading for children, mixing marital lifestrife with a thirtywonder calamity of frankenword portmanteaus. But I hope Lear and Lewis – or even Barrett and Byrne – might intether their disapproves.

I strive to deliver original #poetry monthly, always free to my wonderful #Substack subscribers and ever curious visitors.

An AI-generated image in the style of an Edward Lear nonsense poem, prompted with "an arguing couple spout nonsense at each other. Cheshire cats and owls may have been invoked. And tea. But no snoremice were harmed." Overlaying it top-left is a 'ReidItWrite' logo and URL; top-right is a Substack logo; at centre is the post title "Escape This Nonsense", with the accompanying text: "Funplundering the nonsensical habits of valedicted Victorian poets."

I cannot express how much i hate that people keep posting useful things on #Substack.

Every time i'm sent to a post their !@#$!@ "hey sign in!, or not!" overlay when i'm barely started reading. Today I went to someone's top level page there and it was ONLY that. I literally couldn't see ANYTHING by the author until i clicked through.

Substack may be easy/good for you as a creator but it's terrible for ALL of the people you're hoping to read what you create. It doesn't treat us with respect.

I made a #postcard drawing of Bendico roaching on his sofa, for one of my #Substack supporters. I did a quick pencil, then went over it with a medium brush-pen. I like how it came out, and will play with this pose more, maybe to see how much I can strip from it.

#art #amateurartist #dog #doggo #greyhound #greyhoundsofinstagram

B/W ink sketch of a greyhound roaching, rear legs extended, front legs curled up over chest.

So I'm experimenting with the way I use #Substack.

Posts are now free to read for everyone, but will lock a few weeks after publication.

I always appreciate it when #Medium members choose to read my work on that platform, but for everyone else, you won't miss out if you have a read before the lock-out time.

I'm thankful for my paid subscribers on Substack, and think it's fair that access to archives should be one of the perks of membership.

I'm doing a major #Substack subscription push between now and the end of June. I use my Substack for additional commentary on movies, TV, and Hollywood in general that are not necessarily found on Solzy at the Movies. If you have yet to subscribe, please consider doing so.

I have never used Substack.

I like the idea of newsletter-style no hassle blogging.

I thought I would ask if anyone had any recommendations for a substack alternative?

#Substack #Fediverse

Two issues into my latest newsletter experiment, letting #Substack fend for itself while testing out LinkedIn's offering, and early indications suggest I have two distinct audiences with modest overlap.

Substack views are down ~1/3rd, 96% coming from the email itself. The app has never been more than 10%, while LinkedIn used to be my best non-Substack referrer.

Meanwhile, LinkedIn has half as many views, so my combined reach has grown. Anecdotal, but intriguing. 🤔

Someday I'll remember to post about my new substack posts the day they come out and not two whole days later lol

On Sunday just gone, I posted about why I love the Taylor Swift album 'Speak Now' and why I am so excited for it to come back as a 'Taylor's Version', in a sort of essay form titled '37 and still growing up now' which you can find here:

And then on Monday I posted a list of podcasts that I listen to a lot and really wanted to recommend to folks, in case you haven't heard of them and they seem like something you'd like. You can find that one here:

The nice thing about Substack URLs is, even if it's a different domain name, it still goes "domainname.tld/p/short-slug", and that structure with the /p/ and the slug lets you know that if you click on it, it'll throw that goddamn "wouldn't you like to subscribe?" modal in your face just when you've read the first few sentences and are starting to get interested, so the URL lets you know to just skip the whole goddamn thing.

#Twitter にいまだに沢山の人がいることは事実だから「その #Twitter に情報が流れづらいなら #Substack やめる」という判断もあるのもわかる。

ただ、そういう発想になると結局 #Twitter がどんな場所になってもそこに沢山の人がいる限り、マーケティング上 #Twitter からは逃れられないっていう変なスパイラルになっちゃう(のは個人的に嫌)



#Twitter が当初はそういう場所だったという(勝手な)自分のイメージもある。#Twitter に限らず #SNS って本来そうあるべきというかそういう #SNS が好き、という気持ちもある。

…ので、ユーザーシェアとか数の力で囲い込みされるような場所にはいたくないから #Mastodon #VivaldiSocial にいるのかもなあ :tony_normal:

Not sure if I like the opportunistic email I just got from #Substack all like "Hey writers who got laid off or who are currently on #strike… why not start a newsletter with us?"

Substack's promise of career-building stability and control for writers is a little dubious – just a month ago they were asking their own writers for financing

Of course, I myself have a newsletter on what @fka_tabs calls "Our Regrettable Platform", although I haven't sent one out in months, why am I constantly like this

This week’s #substack is on knowing your own bullshit, something that is fundamental in my self care. I’m learning to work with myself, not against myself, and that means I’m growing with kindness towards myself

#Kindness #MentalHealth

The misconception about being kind to yourself is that you go easy on yourself, which is not true.

Seriously, anyone posting links to #substack or similar place that require readers to #register and #login to see what you want to promote - please go and bury yourself.

How can anyone chose such a crap platform for content creation that hate #readers and sharing of ideas?

If i have a choice between reading your posts and 5000 other peoples posts on platforms that allow me to read things without effort, then guess what - you're not in the winner category.

Every day another cautionary tale for larger organizations why they should be ditching Birdshite/$8chan and jumping to a social network that lets them self host (e.g. #fediverse #mastodon #friendica #akkoma etc) so that they aren't setting themselves up to be under the capricious control of some other Silicon Valley Techbro or his billionaire financiers (e.g. #Bluesky, #PostNews, #substack Notes, etc.) who will inevitably pull the same maneuver eventually. A lesson they will eventually learn? If I were a betting man my money would be on "no" but fingers crossed! On another note, I guess my account isn't safe after all with this recycling new recycling policy. Fuck it. I'm never logging back into that site again.

@atomicpoet I’ve literaly tried every new platform since Twitter & Pownce.. most recently #Post, #Nostr, #Bluesky, #Substack Notes and even #T2. While BlueSky seems to be the most intuitive coming from Twitter (along with Substack and Post) none of these platforms can compete with #Mastodon when it comes to interaction and overall culture.

"These upstart social networks offer havens for the Musk-adverse. I’m glad they exist, even if it’s unlikely they’ll all be around forever.

[#Mastodon] is by far the most fully realized #TwitterAlternative. [...] This is the first social network I’d turn to as my refuge if remaining on Twitter becomes untenable."

Someone should just write some Fediverse software that does similar thing as Substack and speaks ActivityPub. Then people can just host their own instance and share their articles with a mailing list built-in.

While writing this, I guess one could use WordPress with some mailing list plug-in and the ActivityPub integration?! Just that, right now, the WordPress plugin is not really usable as a Fediverse client/UI.
