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.
I started blogging at Substack here: jeffreycarter.substack.com.
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 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.
