    I only ever got on it because it was the main way to keep up with my publisher and how they did cross-promotion with all their authors, so I avoided it for many years. From their constantly changing formats to arbitrarily nuking whatever group or account they feel like or suppressing author pages unless you opt in for paid ads, there’s a lot of negatives going with it. And all of the negatives add up to a lack of control on the part of the author/user.

    It’s the main reason the mailing list needs to be a thing going forward and I can’t keep putting it off. So, in addition to the cookie(s) over the next six weeks, I’ll finally be taking care of that.
