This was such a sobering (and maybe a little sad) read. I don't share your fondness for Twitter but I do mourn the loss of blogs as a space for conversations and sharing life's foibles. I remember feeling so very seen and heard and validated and making many online friends back in the day through blogs. Substack seems the last bastion of that though I feel not enough writers engage in conversation in the comments. Lovely that your newsletter still exists. It's beautiful. <3
