Brad East writes about how blogs are different than Substacks. He contrasts the flexibility of blogging from the fairly predictable format that has emerged from Substack.
Blogging is its own form at this point. It isn’t an essay. Nor is it a scholarly article. It has no length requirements: a blog post can be a sentence, a paragraph, 500 words, twice that, or twenty times that. Neither does blogging come with expectations of frequency. Some folks blog daily; others multiple times a day; others twice a week; others unpredictably, as a kind of clearinghouse for random ideas or thinking out loud.
I love some Substack newsletters to which I am subscribed, but I also appreciate that blogs are less structured. With some blogs, the variety of content is the draw.
