Totally concur with your approach on chat (who needs another!) and special promotions! As a reader, I hate to be continually regaled with this stuff. Happy holidays.

I cannot foresee any situation where a chat feature on substack will be useful. Baffling.

I invite you to be featured in my monthly Keep it 100 micro-interview, Nikhil! I’m booked through April 2023. Let me know if you’re up for the 100-word challenge next May.

New subscriber here! Looking forward to your newsletters and even though I just started my Substack journey, I really like the idea of taking a break from sending out a newsletter for the holidays as the month comes to a close.

+1 on not using the chat feature. I figured people were hearing from me enough as it is!

There are a couple of newsletters that (IMO) use it well- for example one covers WI politics and did a chat during the midterm elections. But for music writers like us? I think Discussion threads cover that well enough.

P.S. Enjoy your time off!! πŸ˜€
