Substack Blog`


This post is by Jeff Carter from Points and Figures


I have been intrigued by Substack ever since I heard about it.  I have blogged here on this WordPress sight for a long time. I have messed with creating content at Medium and LinkedIn.  Never saw the advantage to it.  A long time ago, I had a Tumblr blog and messed with that site too.

So far, the WordPress platform is a bit easier to blog on.  Maybe it’s because I am used to it.  I think that the email subscriber part of Substack is significantly better than WordPress.

I don’t know if I will ever charge for content or not.   I have friends like Brian Lund that do.  It’s obvious writers that had followings like Bari Weiss and Glenn Greenwald are making a lot of money on Substack via paid subscribers.  Alex Berenson recently started writing there too.

I do know that I am suspicious of all social media companies.  It’s obvious Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc are focusing on advancing an agenda that I do not subscribe to in any way shape, or form.  Parler was shut down by collusion between Big Tech and the Federal government which ought to give any freedom-loving person pause.  I have an account at Parler, Gab, MeWe, and Codias.  But, Parler before the forced shutdown was decent.  After, not so much.  Twitter is a left-wing echo chamber being D +60, but the ones I just mentioned are different kinds of echo chambers.
