Shoutout Thread 📢

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

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. This thread is a chance for us to get to know one another, and to share what we’ve been reading and inspired by recently on Substack.

How to participate

  1. Leave a comment below and give a shoutout to another writer or Substack you’re enjoying. Be sure to share the link to the publication of the writer you admire and share a specific reason why you love their work. Bonus: share a favorite post by the writer.

  2. Get to know fellow writers. It’s beneficial to know other writers—both for collaboration and for inspiration. Peruse the thread and get to know who’s here.

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.

Tip: Make your shoutout last! Recommendations allow writers to directly endorse each other’s publications on Substack. Writers can select other Substack publications to recommend to new readers, and can add a recommendations list to their publication homepage as a “blogroll.”

Next week, we’ll be back with Office Hours to answer your questions on publish, growing, and going paid on Substack. Save it to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
