As a TikToker with 34,000 followers… You forgot to tell me why I would take the time to post my video over here when I can’t create, or edit them over here. So I still create over there, and then come here and upload the video that I could just post on TikTok?

Or is the entire goal just to monetize my audience? That feels gross.

Also… I didn’t come to Substack to do more videos.

I came to Substack to write. To read writers’ content. And from all of their posts and notes, the reason they all came and stay is because they can WRITE. So this push you have for video and begging TikTokers to come over to change the platform, also feels a little bit like spitting in the face of the people who built Substack to what it is.

It rounds out the platform, with writers now able to post occasional videos to their audience. Don't think it's meant to replace or change it in any meaningful way.

I hope you're correct. However, as a TechWitch of 15 years, a content creator for 10, and an influencer for 5, with a husband in tech and marketing for 17 years...I do not have that much faith in these platforms once they decide to "have all the things".

I've seen way too many go down the toilet when they try to implement everything everyone else is doing instead of focus on what can enhance their original reason for growing so large.

Links on TikTok only work after you gain 1k followers so before that, promotion is difficult (but not impossible) to keep TikTokers interested when they can't click a link. I'm at just under 500 and it's going to take a while to get my substack link activated.

I don't want Substack to turn in to TikTok. Please, remain pure.
