Pros and Cons Of Substack
Many people wonder whether substack is a good blogging platform. Since I’ve been blogging for 11 years and use substack for about a year, here’s what I think.
Pros of substack
-> Simple to use and set up paid subscriptions.
-> Thread option
-> It is free, however it takes 10% of the subscription profit, plus there is a credit card fee imposed by Stripe, which they use to handle payments.
-> There is a new voiceover option.
-> The post metrics are easily accessible..
Cons of substack
-> Formatting options are limited.
-> Unable to upload videos.
-> Limited available space.
It is a good way to support your work if you already have an audience or if your website is censored. It cannot substitute actual blog hosts. I use it to supplement my blog postings, broaden my readership, and make my work more accessible.
If you like my work and want me to keep doing it, please feel free to share it, donate through my blog, or become a paid subscriber. I am the only expert on the good side telling you the truth as it is. Who else has warned you, for example, about a contaminated blood supply?
