I’ve been backing off a TAD from social media, as a few of you will have seen. I’m nonetheless utilizing it rather more than the typical particular person, I’m certain, however I’ve discovered that for the reason that Twitter has began its slow-motion self-destructmode, the kidlit group have grow to be extra scattered throughout a number of social media platforms. Twitter stays certainly one of my go-to platforms for connecting with educators and kidlit creators, but it surely’s not almost as pleasant an expertise because it as soon as was. There are way more spammers, I discover, plus a few of my favourite kidlit creators are now not on that platform.

I had hoped Publish.information can be a brand new dwelling for a lot of the kidlit group and was actively working towards serving to that occur, however was let down by the fixed tech points and negativity (latter was the most important turn-off, esp Twitter-bashing and unrelenting concentrate on U.S. politics).

No platform is ideal, however after placing WAY too many hours into attempting to get the kidlit group over to Publish.information, I’ve determined that since I’m switching my publication to Substack that it is smart to simply embrace that platform.
