It was about Falcon! I am now the sole person left in it and I can't let go.

Thanks Adam. They're an infinitesimal minority, but they will have you shaking in your boots and questioning whether it's worth continuing. Just tweeting this has me shaking now.

Do I include my return address on the swag package to my patrons? Have I revealed where I live in a tweet? Should I engage with this follower? Do I create a separate email address for my so I don't have to see the responses? I've asked myself all these. 6/

Whatever abuse you get as a female journalist online, you will get more as a solo creator. Maybe not the crowds of bots, but more often the lone creep who reads you obsessively. I don't share about this a lot, because frankly, I'm afraid this person is reading. 5/

Also, there's another reason it's mostly men doing this: safety. A solo newsletter brings the author very close to the audience. That's part of the appeal. You give a lot of yourself, and some readers will not understand there are still boundaries. 4/

For the same reason, I have serious reservations about applying this solo sub model to local news. The more niche you go, the richer your audience (or their expense account) must be. 3/

Size of initial market matters so much because conversion rates are so low. Which means I've only seen this work in English, for predominantly US audiences. Don't think would have made it happen in Danish. My French podcast will never make meaningful money. 2/

Great pod on the reality of going solo. This can't be said enough: it will take more time than you think, it will make less money than you think. Listen then consider a couple more points... 1/

Still struggling with this whole regular scheduling thing. When do you prefer listening to my podcast & receiving my newsletter?

It’s been 14 years so to be fair, I could have forgotten.

This was not covered in my 1100 (which was brilliant nonetheless). 🀯

Was re-reading the Reuters Digital News Report recently and noticed South Korea has the lowest level of trust in the media *in the world*. (France is second worst, not gloating here.)

My first Facebook group was one I created 13 years ago about how bad our newsroom CMS was. Some things never change.

+1 on Lauren’s newsletter. Then you can try my podcast, where you’ll hear from many digital nomads, third culture kids, global citizens...

I get notifications that it’s changed but when I go in the app, it hasn’t. I’m of a mind to uninstall, if I’m giving up privacy and battery life for something that doesn’t even work.
