Yes, I finally made the jump.
Readers have been telling me that I should start a Substack newsletter for quite some time, but initially I was hesitant to do so.
I have always felt that when something isn’t broke, it shouldn’t be fixed. I have been doing things the same way for many years, and today my work touches millions of people all over the globe.
But after careful evaluation of the pros and cons, I have decided that Substack needs to be a part of the next chapter in my adventure. The following are 5 reasons why I have made a decision to start a Substack newsletter…
#1 When Feedburner shut down their email service, I was left with no way to send out my articles to my subscribers. I evaluated other potential options, but it became clear to me that Substack is the best choice. So starting from today, if you subscribe to my Substack you will never miss another update.
#2 Unlike other email services, Substack also offers a blog where readers will be able to find an archive of everything that I post on Substack from this point forward. In the past, I have had to clog up my websites with lots of banner ads in order to generate sufficient revenue to continue doing what I do. On Substack I am not going to do that, and so I will be depending on my faithful readers to sign up for paid subscriptions. For those that are reading this initial post, you can get a 20 percent discount on an annual subscription.
#3 One of the things that I love about Substack is that it allows me to say exactly what I want to say. On so many other platforms, I constantly have to be aware of the censors behind the curtain. On Substack, my work will be uncensored and unfiltered, and I am very excited about that. Those that get free subscriptions will get access to the posts that I make available to the general public, while those that get paid subscriptions will get access to everything that I post.
Michael Snyder’s Substack is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
#4 For a long time, readers have been asking how to financially support my work. Other than buying my books, I didn’t have a lot to offer. But now you get directly involved in the effort to reach millions of people all over the world with the truth by becoming a paid subscriber. By financially supporting this Substack, you literally become part of the team.
#5 Substack exists to support great writing, and a whole host of other prominent names have already joined the platform. Substack blogs do very well in search engines, and social media platforms recognize Substack as a quality source. I am so thrilled to be a part of the community now, and if you are excited about this new newsletter I hope that you will let me know that by becoming an annual subscriber.
This is the beginning of a whole new chapter, and I am so excited.
Substack is so easy to use, and I really wish that I had made this jump sooner.
But better late than never, right?
I am so thankful to all of my faithful readers that have been following my work for so many years.
Now we get to embark on a brand new journey together, and I can’t wait to see what happens next…
You know your stuff, Michael. I'm glad to see you "spreading your wings". 🙏
I like that comments are back again.
