The grand experiment... continues.
I want to thank all our readers for a fantastic first year on Substack. You made a tough time much brighter with your encouragement and good company.
Lisa & Anthony, I'm so sorry about your business loss! What a seriously crappy year for you all. I hope you're able to make it worthwhile to stay on Substack-- the Stacks would be less vibrant without you in it.
At the moment I am unemployed after decades of teaching. My Substack writing doesn’t pay a cent and I don’t have many subscribers. So I am on a moratorium from paying for subs until someone decides to hire me. The downside of having a PhD in teaching and learning is the very narrow realm of opportunities. I’m on the short list for online tutoring, but can’t get my foot in the door editing, writing, proofing, or consulting. I’m not complaining; my income isn’t necessary to our family budget, but it does limit my non-essential spending.
Thanks for the shoutout, Lisa!
Escaping from industrial health care was a leap of faith. Having income again will induce me to spread the wealth. Till then, you just get weedom. 😎 The Creator provides. I anticipate ginormous growth for Brunette Gardens, because you have the skills. It'll take a few years in the case of weedom, because nerd power travels slowly, and that's how long it took the last time I worked to get something worthwhile noticed online.
