Yeah I just realized who you are. I was scrolling through deciding whether or not to join substance. Came across your name and decided the latter. NO THANKS SUBSTACK.

Thanks for the tips - it would be great to get a discussion going about writing ... in a community of writers. I run a monthly writing course and competition here - I'll try out the discussion thread this month and see how that goes.

Thank you!

Could you translate the timings for someone like myself who is in London, UK, please?

About 6 months ago, I added a shorter lighter post on Mondays to the regular Friday deep dive post

My readers like it, as measured by my metrics

I'm experimenting with narrating prior posts into podcasts on demand type of approach

That's great!

Bueno, estoy recién empezando aquí en Substack (aunque mi primera publicación tiene ya meses jaja) Me interesa mucho mirar las publicaciones de mis colegas y aprender de sus variados estilos. Gracias por compartir.

I ask you all to come check out my humble Newsletter, “A.M.’s Newsletter”, because I have an amazing series I call, Horizon Star Walk. On the Planet Oria, Aurora Borealis, Orion Pulsar, Ares Aldrin, and Gemini Taurus are on the run for their illegal activity, the stakes are HIGH for them all. A young Guardian of Oria, Sinsen Orbit, is hunting them down with his Officers backing him up. Will he catch them to be executed before the Queen and King of Oria, or will they successfully escape to Earth? Subscribe to find out!

Hi E. Jean,

Although I was over 60 (and beyond caring about strappy heels and smokey eyes) I still subscribed to Elle magazine just for the pleasure of reading your witty, heartfelt and funny advice column. Glad to know it's alive and well!

May I just say how devastated I was to hear that you were raped by that creepy sleazy bully. It was like it happened to my own sister. Be strong, be well, fight on.

You believe her? lol the world is full of useful idiots. Thanks for coming out as the lemming you are. She insults real rape victims with her tall tails and should be ashamed.

I will do discussion threads, perhaps on a more regular basis because I love the engagement with my readers, but I’d also like to do readings of my work since I have a decent speaking voice. I just jotted down ideas for threads and plan to space them out over the next few months. With audio, I need to dust off my equipment and do some testing.

As an absolute beginner on Substack I need to know the basics. If I decide to publish some sort stories, is there a standard format, ie typeface, text size, layout etc. Could I submit the stories in Apple Pages? If I wish to use a pseudonym, does my Substack page have to be under that name? I see from Salman Rushdie's fiction he has a graphic at the head. Is this included in the text file he submits?

These are all very basic I know, but I need to feel solid ground before I can step into the Ss universe.

Thank you.

This was very helpful as it helped me revamp my tags so that my newsletters can be discovered.

Am I the only one who noticed that Mia hasn't posted in nearly 4 months?

Hi. Just checking. There seems to have been a change in the default promo image in the magazine layout. Seems now to just be the overall substack image, rather than the main image in a particular article or podcast. That right?

Expand full comment

Hmm, so for the most prominent post (the one that's most recent or pinned) you are seeing your publication logo instead of the post preview photo?

Expand full comment

Hi Bernard, there was a change in the logic of which image gets shown for podcast posts about a week ago, but that got updated back yesterday. Hope that helps!

Hello, Steve here. Do you hate church? If you do, I completely understand. My goal is simple. We are as individuals and a country, in one hell of a mess! Things are happening that I never thought could in America. I want to develop a place where godly information can be shared. We are in a spiritual War! The only way we can fight a spiritual war is with spiritual weapons. They only come from God!

I will make regular post. Wednesday will be the regular posting. So, please check back and share this site with your friends.

It is far too complicated. I just want to copy and paste my blog. So far I have spent three days trying to set up the payment system and trying to figure out how to cut and past my blog onto your platform. It is too much. You had better be worth it.
