Grafting to Substock


Dear readers,

You will forgive me for finally getting fed up with the WordPress interface. For this reason, I have opted to go in search of “greener pastures” at Substack. I don’t foresee encountering any reason to remove posts from this site, but I don’t expect to keep publishing here any longer. I anticipate that I will have published an inaugural post there within the next few days. In the mean time, I hope that all of you will follow me there.

  2. As a former web designer/developer, I’ve used (and recommended) WordPress (.org) since its inception. WordPress (.com), not as much because it is, of course, a commercial venture and not the same.

    I’d be curious to know what it is about the interface and/or engagement that prompted the switch and what it is about Substack that you find superior, if you have the time. Perhaps you’d even consider a review and comparison once you’ve been on Substack for a while? I’m sure they both have their strengths and weaknesses.

      Sure thing. Re the WordPress interface: I find the editor immensely cumbersome and counterintuitive to use. I accept that the problem could lie with me and not the program but the Substack editor seemed much more elegant. I expect I will have more to say on this topic with experience.
