There are those of us out there that have to write. It’s in our DNA, we are driven by it. While my own background since 1977 was in producing music and then in 1994 starting my journey into radio, the written word for me is pivotal for me.
The number one reason I am such a substack fan is since the platform launched, they are not censoring content creators, nor is substack censoring the comments sections on their various substack writers presentations.
What is Substack?
First, for those of us who have lived on WordPress for years, it is not just a “blog,” it is a platform that builds community.
Second, think of Substack as a platform for passionate writers who are building their own following and while some of the revenue You receive is shared with Substack. You own you’re own content and if at some point in the future you want to leave the platform, no problem!
Third, you can even post various videos so if you a consultant, an expert in your field or an amateur investigative journalist that must give you’re “take” on the world.
Most of all and this is a big one, Substack can link up to Twitter and if I were you I’d be on Twitter right here right now because Elon Musk took off the gloves and the censorship that was once there under Jack Dorsey’s leadership is now turned off.
As you write new content, it will also post at Twitter and you can build a nice following!
