Good points about the limitations of Substack and Medium, but not as clear about how to set up platform on WordPress. Also referred to Google Feeder, not Reader.
Great article laying out the issues that independent writers face in trying to choose where to publish and how to monetize.
Ownership and customization is super important. We've talked about building a feature to allow writers to draft and publish their content directly on Readup but that would never be the only option. For writers that have their own stack we could make it easy to automatically send out notifications to their followers on Readup when they publish a new piece using an RSS monitor or some other crawler.
What we’ve been calling “self-post,” yeah? Should we just start calling it “Publish” though?
