Over the last four years, we have been building tools that make it easier than at any time in history for writers to connect with readers directly and make meaningful money.
Amazing! Since starting my Substack, I’ve been able to confidently tell people that I’m a “writer,” when asked what I do. It’s a real dream. Thank you and congrats on this huge milestone!
I have a number of paid subscriptions to Substack writers. I have paid for these by non-renewal of NYTimes, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Atlantic, Atlanta Journal Constitution, New Yorker and Tampa Bay Times. These news/opinion outlets were an echo chamber often leading with the same article and often the same rotating masthead writers. I have sent gift subscriptions of several Substack writers to people I used to give gifts of echo chamber outlets.
I still subscribe to two local newspapers where I live and multiple disciplinary journals.
I write a free substack and migrated the content from other blogging sites.
I would not call this "siphoning off." I would call it looking for wider perspectives. Also the substack comment section is interesting, non-moderated and enhances the conversation about cultural and political issues from multiple viewpoints.
Glen Greenwald’s writing brought me here and I have never regretted it. Some amazing writers, content, and comment sections are here. Time to deal a death blow to the legacy social media. The are useless and self serving.
Wow! I’ve been writing through Substack since 2019 and it’s been such an expansion of my writing life - thanks so much for constantly innovating and expanding. Doing Substack Grow was another leap for me. Three cheers for all you do!!
I love that you're creating an alternative to "the attention economy", where good words really matter. Thank you for it!
Finally found a platform safe and with easy control! A Miracle for writers.
Congrats guys! I have been on Substack writing about sports since the start of the Summer, and have found a number of amazing journalists. Keep up the great work!
Substack has motivated me to follow my passion once again and has enabled me to reach a wider audience. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
