To celebrate, I reread all sixty articles. They vary wildly in format, content, style, length and effort, but I am pleased with them all. A quick reminder of why I’m here From my Profile: “I'm a teacher at heart. I write a few things to help process the madness of the covid era. I started writing for myself, but now I find it pleasing to imagine something I write resonates with someone else and helps in some small way.”
Congratulations on your Stackiversary Shane!
I'm absolutely fascinated by the overlap section. I subscribe to all the stacks you mentioned except Igor's (I often read his posts when they're cross-posted by others; he's absolutely brilliant but I had to draw the bloody line somewhere on subscriptions, otherwise I'd have so much to read each day, that I'd never get anything else done!!!!).
Well done. The stats are interesting (maybe because I like stats :) ) I rarely open a hyperlink to ‘check’ what people have written , and if I do, probably don’t do the linked article/ substack justice... there’s just not that much time available. That said, I’ll open quirky ones. Whatever that means. And I find I no longer have the concentration span I used to.
Thank you Shane: I look forward to reading this selection again - and congratulations 🎉 on this birthday ! It seems like more than one year !!!
From a fellow scribbler, thanks for the shoutout.
And congrats on twelve months of toil.
Whoever thought that a few short years ago, there would be such a thing as Substack and scribbler citizens who would otherwise be entirely unaware of each other.
