Substack launched a new dashboard recently. (I'm still there for now, though I think I've found my new platform - there are a couple of features on the roadmap that still need to be rolled out before I can make a seamless transition.) But anyway, the new dashboard allowed me to discover some stats:
Curious about the alternative platform you have found! I spent zero time on Notes as one look made my brain go "It's just Twitter" and I noped out. And then I read the zero moderation policy because apparently none of the people who build Substack are familiar with the paradox of tolerance, which is a REAL PROBLEM. So yeah, looking for alternatives.
One brick at a time, the house will be built. Good luck with the switch!
