End of 2021: Substack Takes a Back Seat to Covid
May your 2022 have more Substack, less covid.
I intended to start on a helpful post or two for the new year. An analysis of what several writers have said about Substack success. Or an examination of Google search results for Substack newsletters and posts.
But it's Covid Week. I don't have Delta, Omicron, or any other letter (yet). But a few people I know do.
I've been helping them out: assisting them not to panic; going to stores, including several that were out of in-home covid test kits; reviewing CDC recommendations and criticisms thereof; etc.
I'm amazed I haven't gotten covid yet. Or if I did, it's asymptomatic.
Many vaccinated, boosted, and masked people are getting covid for no apparent reason. If you told me that reading CDC guidance might give you covid, at this point I wouldn't be surprised.
Why are you reading this post? You could get covid from it. Avert your eyes! 🙄
A useful post will have to wait until 2022. Instead you get this post.
But if I can't be so useful this week, at least I can be wishful for a relatively happy new year.
I wish you good luck avoiding covid or a cold or anything ill; the best of care and recovery if you experience illness; and, most of all, a 2022 in which you can focus on better things, such as reading and writing.
