I'm mostly on Substack these days. I'm posting between 7-10 pieces per month. some require a lot of reading/research. On Medium, I've been posting about 5-6/month. My "Unschool for Writers" pieces are very focused; my Medium work is looser...whatever I feel like writing at the moment. Yes, the challenge of Substack is really having to promote your work, to bring folks to it... so I post on social media (ugh!)

Do you Medium followers know you're over there?
