I have a small, but kinda big, announcement to make. I am consolidating all of my e-newsletters, blogging, and book reviews into one monthly newsletter that I launched today called, “Rogue Writer, by Shari Lopatin.”
I’m using Substack for this change, but I’m still keeping my writer’s page here on WordPress. However, if you follow along on my blog for my book reviews, updates on my writing projects, or even the occasional social/political commentary, subscribe to “Rogue Writer” below to keep getting those posts.
And if the name, “Rogue Writer” sounds familiar to you, it should. When I first began my writer’s journey to blogging a decade ago, I named my original WordPress blog, “Rogue Writer.” So essentially, I’m going back to my blogging roots.
You might have heard about Substack, especially in 2020, when many well-known writers began migrating to the platform to go independent and make more money. Essentially, Substack acts as an email management tool, a newsletter publisher, and a blogging platform, all in one. And here’s the biggie: it gives the option for its writers to offer paid subscriptions.
That might come down the road for me, and if it does, don’t worry! You won’t have to pay to keep getting my posts. But I do have some fun add-ons and special access that future paid subscribers might get. 🙂
Right now, however, consolidating everything into one publishing platform is easiest for me. And although Substack has taken some recent heat as other competitors start to catch up and offer better deals for writers, I decided this is the place to start this new journey.
Also, I am writing another book, so if you want to keep up with its progress, then subscribe to Rogue Writer! See you there.
