To Be Seen

Mood: Grouchy/worn out. Yesterday felt like three days. Toiling in obscurity. [Accomplishment: getting a dryer filled with wet towels to remain semi-functional. Day 2: Dryer is still attempting to dry the towels.]

Reading about: Travis Scott concert disaster; covid.

Entertainment: Monty Python, “How Not to Be Seen”; Radiohead, “How to Disappear Completely.”

The commonality: On a grand scale, in a crowd, and on an individual level, we want or need to be seen. Sadly, often we're not.

I reckon publishing or commenting on a Substack newsletter can help meet our need to be seen.

In a better week, I intend to examine Google search results and give some thoughts about how to make newsletters more likely to be seen. (I was a contractor for a few years on two Google projects and later a reference librarian. So I have background for analysis and conclusions of Google results.)

In the meantime, let me ask you:

What do you do to get your newsletter more likely to be seen on Google or elsewhere? 🤔
