@numericcitizen Nice comparison. It’s interesting reading about the services available to do these things, especially with Twitter and Facebook looking to get in on these tools And now some writers are moving (back) to Ghost...

@numericcitizen A few weekends ago, I spent a morning customizing the look of a Buttondown newsletter. It’s definitely more customizable than Substack, but I concluded that my newsletter looked better with one of the built-in Substack themes than anything I could put together with CSS, so I stayed put, at least for now.

@artkavanagh Buttondown customization features were pretty much left out from my article as I had to first pass the “low friction” editing gate which didn’t happen for me. Customization would have been the second gate.
