I get the e-mail notifications, and apparently there are over 100 of you signed up now. So that’s pretty good, considering I never update this thing.
I’m still not sure what to do with this platform. I see the stories about all these guys making a lot of money on Substack, but I’m not famous or popular enough for that. I don’t know. I’ve primarily made my living from writing for 15 years now, and I’ve been able to get by but that’s about it. I feel like if I was going to make something of myself, it would’ve happened by now. I’ve been able to pay my bills with it, and I’ve kept a roof over my head with the settlement money I got from the State Department (long story, if you don’t know it), but I don’t know how much longer that’ll last. What do I do now? Feels like too many people hate me on both sides of the political aisle to want to read my writing, and I’m too old to start over doing something else.
Anyway. Thanks for reading. I’ll try to figure out what to do with this Substack, other than whining.
