“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.
