I'm moving to Substack for newsletters on Oct 1st
While this weekend’s newsletter will be going out via the usual method, I’ll be making the switch to Substack from Sunday 1st October.
Thanks for reading Thought Shrapnel! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.
Posts and microcasts will still be available on the Thought Shrapnel website. I have no intention of paywalling the newsletter, although (as I have done before) I may offer the ability to optionally support this labour of love and keep it going.
Three things to note
Wondering why you’re receiving this? If I’ve made a mistake and accidentally re-subscribed you after you opted out of receiving this newsletter, than my apologies. Just hit unsubscribe (again) and you’ll not hear from me again.
MailPoet is great, but weird. Related to the above, while the MailPoet plugin for WordPress is in many ways fantastic, it weirdly unsubscribes people or marks them as ‘inactive’. This is obviously suboptimal if you’re trying to send emails to people who want to receive them.
Substack is great for discovery. Some of my favourite writers are already using Substack, and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me! Also the Notes feature is great, almost like a social network for writers.
In no particular order, here’s a list of five publications that you might like if you’re a fan of Thought Shrapnel:
So, to reiterate, things will be as they were this weekend (24th September) but I’m switching to Substack for the newsletter on 1st October.
