“The American Peasant,” my new Substack blog that I seemingly won’t shut up about, has been selected to be featured on Substack’s home page (No. 5 out of five, baby). Plus we’re featured in Substack’s app.
What does this mean? Well, we got this cool digital badge, which I have printed out and pinned to my shirt today. Isn’t it nice?
I have never sought out awards or recognition in my career. But it is gratifying at times to have someone say: “Hey, you are No. 5 in our book. For the week.”
There are free and paid subscriptions available to “The American Peasant.” Plus a free seven-day trial. Warning, it is *much* saltier than this blog. But the rewards are even more umami-esque. Or something. Anyway, it is great fun to let my hair down (what’s left of it) as a writer and talk about woodworking (and business and writing) the way I do over beers with friends.

Nice and funny today
Well I thoght it was a reference to the jack of all trades !
Well done Chris. It’s a great read. Looking forward to more in the future.
Reading the descriptions of the other 4 on the list, American Peasant presents a counter-cultural difference. Congratulations!
Exactly. Curate This….
You were made for Substack. It’s my first subscription there, and I’m enjoying it immensely. I hope it gives you the freedom to keep pursuing weird shit and telling us about it.
Considering how central the #5 plane is to woodworking, being #5 on the list feels rather appropriate.
Better than being Number Two.
Well done Chris! Have really enjoyed the new blog with all the detail… as well as your humor. Thank you for sharing your experience and wisdom.
It’s not same as going to eleven but it’s always nice to be recognized.
Congrats Chris! You know what they say about being #5 – that’s the same as being fourth loser. Keep up the nice work and have fun doing it!!!!

That doesn’t make any sense at all, you can be second, third, fourth… hell you can even be fifth.
Salty can be good.
Please, please kick number 4’s ass next time.
I will try. I think Bespokeus runs No. 4.
So you are the jack plane out of all pf them
Oh congratulations! I have signed up for the paid subscription and look forward to more of your insightful, human, and enriching (for me) posts. Best wishes for the holidays
“Fifth” holds special meaning for me – usually single malt.
Since subscribing, I find myself checking my email more often. Always a fun read.
Keep it coming.
When anarchists became cool… Does this mean you’re going to become sn “influencer”, and start taking lots of selfies?
You’re the most beautiful girl in the room. The whole wide room.
No. You are, Hot Brown.
Cool! How about in celebration of this, you make a poster of it for sale. 🙂
