It has been a while since I did my last open thread. Since I have a bunch of new subscribers, I sometimes think I talk a little too much about myself, so I wanted to give you the chance to come and talk about whatever you would like!

Would you be interested if I started a new section of this Substack dedicated to social media marketing?

Happy commenting!
