Hey you,

Dana here. I’m leaving a note to say I’ve paused writing on Medium for now and likely forever.

Medium can be a great place! Also, for various reasons, it was no longer a fit. I write about that some (and sobriety from mindless web time, social media, and overwork) over on Substack. Speaking of which…

Yes, that’s where you’ll find me. I put out a newsletter once a week, which you can read in your inbox or on Substack itself (a platform which is free to join and which has an abundance of very good writing).
