I wish I had time to make blogs, I could do so many, I am however going to look into this substack thing.

I am trying to sort myself out content-wise. A lot of plans I just need to put them into action.

I used to use wordpress a lot because I loved the editor. But since they changed over I don't blog as much (despite the option of using the classic editor)

cool what did you like about it? and what did you blog about?

I had two blogs: one that was reviews and editorials about anime and video games. Another that was more of a Japanese practice blog where I did translations and like a diary in Japanese again to practice writing Japanese

I guess I liked it was easy to upload files to it: images, videos, make a gallery of pictures and then sticking them all in a post.

Awww amazing! I keep thinking about trying to learn Japanese but I’ve never been good at languages so think I’d brutally struggle with it

I used wordpress a lot 15+ years ago. Used it recently and I agreed that Gutenberg editor is not good.

It's also very bloated and slow these days V competing CMS's, yet somehow still needs loads of plugins (often full of restrictions unless you pay) to do basic stuff like proper gdpr compliance for cookies etc. this in turn widens the security risks and attack footprint.

I'm seriously considering launching a newsletter via beehiiv (I don't think substack is right for what I actually want to do). Currently writing up a free 7 day course/guide about something and then the first 3 or 4 newsletters after that.

Once I've got the product done and I decide to actually launch it or scrap it, I will look at all the platform options again before committing. Will update if I do end up putting any serious time into the configuration on their service or a different one.

Substack, I get linkedin vibes from, where everyone on there seems to have their own content/brand "Me" they are trying to push. it feels like everyone interacts with other people's content with the real motive of self promotion. Like your audience is mostly other writers. My other thoughts are it's long form article length twitter. Basically another social network you are at the mercy of, rather than owning your own audience (although you can at present export your email list and migrate to another platform subject to gdpr and data protection considerations).
