Hamish, it's truly inspiring to read about how you, Chris, and Jairaj have come together as the creators of Substack to use your collective skills and passion for supporting and uplifting writers.

Your team's humility, combined with the analytical and innovative thinking from diverse perspectives, is a testament to the power of collaboration in building a successful startup. As the founders, you've created a community that empowers and enriches the lives of writers and readers alike, showcasing that there are talented minds focused on making a real impact beyond just ads and personal gains.

The synergy between the three of you is what makes Substack special, and your individual strengths contribute to the platform's success. Keep pushing the boundaries and making a difference in the world of writing, and remember that the entire Substack community is behind you, cheering you on! 🙌📚✨

It felt really optimistic reading about your and your co-founders' journey. It left a deep sentiment with a hopeful undertone that the mindset of ad driven content can be changed with a subscription driven content. Thanks for that.

I just started voraciously reading many writers on Substack not knowing how I got here. I started writing on the notes and chats.

Then lots of people started to follow ME and I hadn’t written anything myself yet?

How bizarre is that?

I don’t know anything about doing that on my own page so need to know where the directions are to get started?

Can you help me?
