Substack

Very valid point. Thanks so much!

I would go with Medium if I had to choose between those two. The potential is more reliable.

This is exactly my sentiment. When it comes to consistency, Medium is a bit more predictable and reliable but I do take a bit of an issue with their pay structure.

Substack as the place to host your content, but you’ve gotta have a distribution strategy.

Make a plan for how you’ll reach people on social, through guest posts on media sites, or even using Medium to distribute your content.

I’d link to my Substack within the Medium articles. Link to the sign up page, link to old newsletters, etc.

Hi Guys
I have 6.5+ YoE in production support working for Barclays Bank IB portfolio. Can I get any referrals for BNY. Skill set Autosys, Unix scripting, SQL, Jira, Agile methodology, ITRS, Nolio, User & Application support, adept at incident, change and problem management areas.

I think I’m being underpaid, according to pay scale and some suspicion I’ve had over the last year. I’m almost at 1 year with my company and I’ve been thrown around to different products, and my new product is more technical, more chaotic, and more intertwined with other teams compared to what I was on. My only issue is that I don’t have goals or KPIs to compare when asking for a raise. Is it justified to ask for a raise when you’re in a more technical product line etc? I can lay out differences

Sorry if this has been asked before but how much of a cushion do you guys keep in your checking account (relative to your net monthly income) every month?

I net 6,250 and keep $1k but thinking about lowering it to $500 so I can throw the other $500 in my savings. I find myself never dipping into that $1k so I feel like it’s too much.

Is it possible that we can be friends given this situation?

Been one of the only writers at my digital shop for two years. Busted my ass since I started and was finally notified of my first raise today...a measly 0.02%.

I realize raises are tough to come by right now, but am I justified in feeling insulted? We have some big clients on our current roster for a relatively small agency, and the best they could do wasn't even a full percentage? Is it even worth it to counteroffer?
Been eyeing other jobs for a minute, but this was probably the final straw.
