Greetings! Yes, I’m still here, and nothing of consequence will change at this site. I do have a new venture, however, that will be unfolding alongside JHFARR.COM, namely the above at Substack.com. Substack is a minimalist digital publishing platform intended for “newsletters,” although a single essay qualifies. Photos work. Anything works, plus there’s an option for paid subscriptions when I choose to throw the switch. Everything is free for now, however, so get right on it. Each post pops into your email inbox formatted just the way you see it on the website. You can read the damn things on your phone, for godssake. Here’s more info.
Why am I doing this?
• It’s a great way to republish great material from here, updated with more photos, and present it to a whole new audience.
• I don’t have to think about design. Adding photos to posts is drag-and-drop. It’s fast.
• Substack manages the mailing list.
• I can actually get paid for writing.
I mean, I can even add audio to the posts from the composing interface. This thing will be a hoot. Don’t worry, though: you’re still good to go right here. New stories will end up in both places, except for audio and image-heavy posts for paid subscribers (later).
Hang in there. Big things a-comin’.
