Like most people, I juggle blogging and podcasting around freelance projects and other commitments. Each new subscriber (like you!) allows me more headspace space and time to focus on the ‘work’. You inch me ever so closer to doing this full time.
Third party services like Patreon and Substack were the last successful innovation of Web 2.0. But they are also closed ecosystems. In 2023 with everything that’s going on with social media, I think it’s more important than ever to operate and control your own financial income stack. So thats why I don’t have a presence on any of those ‘creator monetisation’ platforms.
