This came at a key time for me -- I'm getting my own newsletter off the ground, and I simultaneously want to make it good and do *not* want to follow a typical Substack model (narrow focus + paid subscriptions + clear branding). I think Substack is thinking of content producers in a wider sense -- I've heard them describing this as the home of our media empire -- but some of us don't want media empires, but a space for expression, connection, and play.

Congrats on 3 years! Time flies when you are having fun. Thanks for recommending Lonely Victories newsletter. I'm always on the lookout for other writing and reading newsletters since I write a reading adjacent newsletter about books and reading.

Also thanks to Hurley for pointing out the article about Margaret Wise Brown - how awesome! I think I saw this pop up somewhere and was in too much of a hurry so glad to be able to read it now.

Congratulations on 3 years! And you know, I think with art what I've had to learn is people will see/hear what they need and it often won't be what you meant. Sometimes that scares me (being badly misinterpreted) but mostly I think it's wonderful the way we can all see something different in the clouds or ice formations or a feather floating down in front of us. I love finding women who area already established writers saying it's ok to do something because you deeply enjoy doing it and let it be what it decides to be.
