Shoutout Thread 📢

This week, we’re taking a break from Office Hours for the May edition of our monthly Shoutout Threads.

We host Shoutout Threads because we know writers want more ways to discover great writing on Substack, and we’re always looking to celebrate writers who are finding a home here. As a writer, it’s beneficial to know other writers—both for collaboration and for inspiration. This thread is a chance for us to get to know one another, to share what we’ve been reading, and been inspired by recently on Substack.

Today we are hosting a parallel shoutout thread dedicated exclusively to great Substack publications that cover business and finance.

How to join today’s Shoutout Threads:

  • General thread 📢

    Leave a comment on this thread and give a shoutout to another writer or Substack you’re enjoying. Be sure to share the link to the publication of a writer you admire, and why.

  • Business and finance thread 📈

    Follow this link to our themed Shoutout Thread to share mentions of your favorite Substacks on business and finance. Don’t forget to explain why you’re a fan of the publication you’re recommending.

Writers, make your shoutout last! Recommendations is a new feature that allows writers to directly endorse each other’s publications on Substack. Writers can now select other Substacks to recommend when a new reader subscribes to their own publication. Writers have the choice fo recommendations to appear on their publication homepage as a “blogroll,” in the footer of their homepage, and as a standalone webpage at

Our team will be in the threads today from 10 a.m.–11 a.m. PST / 1 p.m.–2 p.m. EST in discovery and celebration mode with you all.

Next week, we’ll be back with Office Hours. Save it to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
