The Substack has been up for a week, and it’s been fun so far. Lots of people have ideas about what to do, and how to do, “paid newsletters.” I’ve gotten some feedback on Twitter and elsewhere. I may change it up, or not.
Tanner Greer has a post up on his weblog, Why I am Bearish on Substack. He makes some good points. But to be frank, his weblog and Kevin Drum are almost the only “bloggers” I read who aren’t on Substack. The old ecosystem is dead. But clearly, this can’t scale…I’m not going to pay $200 a month for Substacks (well, perhaps…).
Suggestions and comments are welcome. Right now it’s a mix of free and paid stuff, and that’s my current plan.
