Me gushing about how happy I am on Substack and how I really feel like myself on here and how I love you guys
Omg sorry to keep bothering you guys - I’ve been writing so much on here I’ve actually gotten worried that it’ll make people unsubscribe out of annoyance lol.
I already made a thank you for my paid subs, but I wanted to post for everyone. Thank you!!! Thank you for the support.
I have not felt this excited or passionate about something in a really long time. I wish I had started Substack sooner. This is what I wanted out of having an internet presence - I wanted a space where I could really share who I am, where I could make things that reach people and speak to them, where I could speak profoundly and meaningfully. I wanted a little community, I wanted something reciprocal, something where we can interact. I really didn’t get much of these things from TikTok.
I have SO MUCH to share on here, it’s actually a matter of stopping myself from posting three times a day. I have been writing for hours every day since I started this.
I am really optimistic and putting my all into this, and I am hoping that it can become the most successful form of my online presence, because it is already the one that I am most proud of.
I have been putting in a lot of work so make sure that joining the paid tier of subscribers feels really really worth it. We interact a lot already, I take suggestions/requests on content and brainstorm what to write about with them. I share really personal things, diary entries, lessons from my worst experiences and the best in life. I want it to feel like you are getting access to being closer to me, not just getting access to more of my writing. I really do care about the relationship I have with the kind of people who have followed me to this platform, and especially those who are invested enough in me as a person and my thoughts and creativity to materially support me.
I will keep working at this until I can fully support myself from doing it, and I know that sounds ambitious and a bit naive but I am faithful that something that makes me this happy and allows me to express myself is a basket that’s worth putting my eggs into. I see TikTok now as the springboard that could launch me onto a platform like this that I am so much more comfortable and sincere on. Don’t worry, I’ll still post TikToks.
But I just feel really comfortable in my skin on here.
Thank you guys endlessly for your kind words and support. I have felt so much warmth and appreciation and I have felt seen on here so much more than any other platforms. Thank you for making me feel special and smart, thank you for telling me what I mean to you. I feel incredibly close to the people that have followed me to this platform.
i don’t think it’s one bit naive to want this platform to fully support you eventually. that makes sense to me and there are already so many people that love your work. if it feels natural and right, keep at it and the rest will follow❤️❤️❤️
I love you abby 💘💘
