Many people wonder whether substack is a good blogging platform. Since I’ve been blogging for 11 years and use substack for about a year, here’s what I think.

Pros of substack

-> User-friendly.

-> Simple to use and set up paid subscriptions.

-> Thread option

-> It is free, however it takes 10% of the subscription profit, plus there is a credit card fee imposed by Stripe, which they use to handle payments.

-> There is a new voiceover option.

-> The post metrics are easily accessible..

Cons of substack

-> Formatting options are limited.

-> Unable to upload videos.

-> Limited available space.


It is a good way to support your work if you already have an audience or if your website is censored. It cannot substitute actual blog hosts. I use it to supplement my blog postings, broaden my readership, and make my work more accessible.

I need your help. This blog and substack are my sole sources of income. Being an antinarrative activist has a high cost: I am a persona non grata. Nonetheless, I must pay the increasing expenses (post how to live for less soon).
How to assist me do what I’m doing now?
Make a donation through my blog or become a paid subscriber to my citizen journalism substack newsletter. In addition to regular articles on current hot topics, it includes a weekly review of the most important news and events (published every Sunday morning Central European Summer Time).

-> Even if you can’t afford to support me, you can still follow my blog and become a free substack subscriber to ensure you don’t miss out on anything. I’m also working on new helpful articles.

-> Don’t forget to share and make more people aware. There is a need to inform those who are not online. Look here to see how it could be done .
