Exploring a new model for media organizations on Substack
Y’all talking about media empires over there, and I’m just chugging along telling 60 subscribers about coffee.
Why "empire"? I thought substack was for the indie bloggers not media empires. I'll be worriedly watching out.
PS. Recently left Medium after 7 years. I really hope I don't have to move again soon.
Cool idea for 2023 is instead to not gear everything towards media empires.
I come to Substack because it collects and amplifies rebellious, singular voices.
What if we don’t have a “media empire” but would kill for a new layout?
I think it would really shake up the world of publishing/social media/tech in general if Substack didn't only promote already existing "empires". There's a lot of authors who only have a small province, but one that's richly planted. Substack would still get their portion of paid subscriptions.
Unless of course Substack has special deals with the kings and queens of the giant realms where they get more of a percentage. Then it makes perfect sense to only promote the bigs.
But what a concept, huh? The tech world would look on in wonder and astonishment!
Bari Weiss is not a journalist, but a right-wing mouthpiece. BAD EXAMPLE!
Interesting. Don’t bail on the little guys.
It seems like they are building a “destination” website. The model that has failed almost everyone else and brought about Substack. I can envision small newsletters banding together to create an “empire” but then the money issue gets icky. I reckon my empire will remain small. 🤓
I am so relieved she is still associated with Substack as I was alarmed when I tried to visit an old Substack link and found it redirected to the Free Press (https://www.thefp.com/p/how-to-be-a-pioneer). New site looks awesome!
Pretty icky 🤮
Great job on giving an even larger platform to an extreme right-wing hack! 🎉
I’m building a contrarian investor media empire. Yes, really
I’m interested to see where this goes.
Please show some love to fiction writers and create a better fiction publishing and reading experience. You could be competing with Kindle/Vella/Wattpad but right now the UX isn’t there.

Matthew, how can I become part? I love coffee. I have fewer subscribers, that isn't it, I'm trying to start a podcast. Where you talk into a mic? I figure use my wife's cell phone. I have a radical idea to take people back to prepper/survivalist times.. I've been living it for over twenty years. lol I used to live in those big tubes in Penn. Station in NYC. Now that was fun and funny.
