Simon, thank you sooooo much for creating this video series. We started our newsletter here on Substack several months ago, but I still learn something new in each video. We are actively looking for ways to improve and optimize our newsletter and your videos are definitely helping us reach our goal. So, thank you.

I joined Substack because of all your emails! Glad to see this video and have a clearer explanation as to what you, I mean, I have got myself into! :D

I have yet to begin writing on Substack, but when I do, I will be confident that I can create a visually appealing post with useful features for my (hoped-for) readers. Thank you so much for providing this great education!

Clear, helpful and succinct article summarising the Substack post editor.

An additional note on the "Subscribe now" button that I learnt is that on posting your article the button will look slightly different depending on the readers subscription state.

- Subscribed state: Shows as a tick with the word "Subscribed".

- Unsubscribed state: Shows a text field with "Type your email" on the left of the subscribe button.`

This was very helpful! Thank you! For adding a link, it would be nice to have a drop down list of my own posts so I can link to my own posts easily. (Wordpress has this) You mentioned linking to your own work but I believe you said you have to copy and paste the link and it will show up beautifully with an image. Is there an easy way to get the link? I hope that makes sense. Thank you.

Posts have a little 'share' button along the top, or near the title if you're looking on your archive/home page. If you're viewing the post itself, you can also just grab the URL from the browser.
