I just wanted to provide an update on my Substack newsletter, Blogging Guide. Yesterday I reached 250 paid subscribers!
When I started this newsletter, a little less than a year ago, I had no idea that it would be this successful. I would have thought 25 paid subscribers would be ambitious!
Of course, it took a lot of hard work to get to this point, and I don't want to mislead anyone into thinking that starting a Substack newsletter is in any way a "get rich quick scheme."
That said, if you are willing to spend 12-18 months building an audience by providing amazing content for free and create/run a newsletter for 12 months (creating both newsletter posts and premium content for subscribers, along the way), you can definitely create a subscription newsletter of value with Substack.
I'll be doing a post on my blog in the next week or so, detailing the process and some of the lessons I learned more in detail, but feel free to ask any questions here!
