I sent the very first newsletter to 26 subscribers. Initially wanted to wait to reach 50 subscribers before sending the newsletter but decided to send anyways.
As the blog is hosted on Medium, I understand the power of platforms in amplifying content. Substack was a clear and only choice to launch the newsletter given its slick interface, ease of use and name recognition. Not to mention, the possibility to someday create a subscription newsletter.
