If you received an email saying you had your subscription canceled, have no fear. You are still on the list. I’ve only been using this platform (Substack) for a little while, and it had originally been set up to allow readers to sign up for a paid subscription if they were needing somewhere to put their couch money. Big high five to the few of you who bought me a coffee every month.
It sounded cool at the time, but I’m not writing enough to justify it charging anyone. That’s not what this writing project is about. I found myself just giving every new subscriber a free lifetime subscription if they chose the free option.
I’d rather have people subscribe because they want to know when a new post goes live, and I don’t need the pressure of “delivering paid content.”
Being a “content producer” seems like an empty reason to get up in the morning.
Sorry for the extra email. Talk to you soon.
