All I Want for Christmas is [More Subscribers for] You
(and for me too ... is it naughty to be a little selfish?)
In case you haven't heard the song that inspired today's title:
Really, I want many things this holiday season: no more covid; world peace; etc.
Even regarding Substack, I want more than subscriptions for you and me… even though I'll interrupt this post with the standard pitch (slightly modified):
Sub Pub is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber. And consider subscribing to other newsletters too!
I also want:
The secret to Substack success. “Substack success” may include more subscribers. But more generally it's reaching your Substack goals. If anyone at Substack has told you what the secret is during office hours, please let us know. (In all seriousness, I plan to read a bunch of “the secret to Substack success” posts and let you know soon what I find.)
For Substack to be even more “on the same page” with creators in 2022. Substack tries and often succeeds in facilitating communication with (and among) creators. But I feel there's still disconnect with what creators want and need.
For Substack to send a holiday present (or some crypto tokens) to creators. (No obligation, Substack. But it would be nice.) 😉
For you to enjoy the holidays and feel re-energized to create in 2022. 🎆
What do you want? 🤔
