the text-based platforms are being shaken up

Well. I thought I was set on having my newsletter over on Revue before I took a hiatus to adjust to moving, but…with the change in Twitter ownership leaving the site uncertain and making changes left and right, I’m afraid the Twitter-owned Revue won’t be much of a priority, so I want to get out while I can.
Substack definitely has a lot more features and more of a community and I’ve always preferred it for that…it just also has become a place where anti-trans rhetoric thrives, monitizes, and gets recommended by the platform itself. There are a lot of great people on here that I admire, however. Still, if you are not engaging with Substack, I understand and will have everything available on my Patreon as well.
My main goal here is to build a mailing list for my writing and avoid getting sucked into social media. I have turned on paid subscriptions and have some plans for that, but right now it is mainly an option to support me. In the future I plan to have some creative work behind a paywall, but most essays and all news will be free.
I’m keeping the “Quarter Life Crisis” theme for now because it fits me well, although the newsletter will be less themed as far as the writing goes. I want to talk about the books I’ve been loving, how music moves me, my writing process, TV shows that make me think…all the stuff I’ve missed about blogging. And this is just frankly the best platform to do it on right now.
While you’re here, you should subscribe to my partner’s newsletter because we have plans for that too!
