Ditching Medium for Substack Part 1
Let’s start the ownership revolution.
Why? The main and now very obvious reason is that I don’t own any of the relationships with my readers. Medium gives me no email list which means I am at the mercy of this platform.
This is only part 1. Next step is to completely own my content by transitioning from Substack to my personal website. I don’t have time to build a website right now (too busy building Stormx.io so we can get mass adoption of crypto moving). But, eventually I’ll get my own domain, a word press site and hopefully migrate everyone over.
Here’s a few other quick takeaways:
- If you don’t know what to post then curate the best content from you favorite follows
- Format your tweets so they are quick reads. Use the comments section.
- Focus on quantity so you can find your voice and test it out faster. But you have to have a minimum bar for quality. Otherwise you’re just spamming.
- Your Twitter is your lighthouse for your like minded people
My personal motivation for this move also stems from why I care so much about crypto — real ownership. We’ll soon be in a world where you are your own bank and one day your own platform. No one will be able to de-platform you.
