THIS!!! You echo so much of my own thoughts when it comes to the different platforms, and I’m thrilled you’ve found your place in it all. Similarly, I recently had the wake-up call that I’m a writer who publishes, not just a publisher who can write. Although I’m more writer than reader, I’m grateful to share spaces with you and continuously appreciate your insight 🖤

Well. I was ambivalent to Threads until I read this. I love writing on Substack for my existing readers, and Notes is good for interacting with other writers. Threads sounds like a place to meet new readers, which is always cool.

This is EXACTLY how I have been describing it to other book people who are still on the fence about making the leap over to Threads. In one week, I have had more reader engagement there than I have had in years on Twitter.
