I will be spending some time developing my Substack page/newsletter over the next few days. I need to get back to putting the best of my writing out into the world with my newsletter. I’m unsure about how to split what I produce between this blog and the Substack platform, which in some ways, is also a blog.
Michael Wade has some tips for new bloggers!
I’ve had a re-think about how I would like to move forward with my motorsport blog. The Rennsport Report has been neglected over the last couple of years, especially when I took on writing duties for The Checkered Flag. Well, I have decided to move RSR over to Substack, where it will become a subscription-based newsletter (paywall from 2021). I am working hard to come up with a more entertaining way of delivering race reports etc. There has to be a better way.
Hopefully, I will attract enough subscribers to help to pay for the expenses incurred by getting to, and reporting from the various races. Only time will tell.
You can sign up to the RSR newsletter by clicking here.
So, I have decided to study for an Open Degree through the OU.
I will mostly be studying creative writing, which I am hoping will help me to forge a writing career, before I get too old at least.
2019 is fast approaching, and along with it a considerable amount of uncertainty. People I know are burying their heads in the sand and saying shit like “it will all sort itself out, I don’t know why you let it bother you”.
Well, fuck that. How can we sit by and watch the people that run our country, drive us into a brick wall at 100mph?
Anyway, the uncertainty is making me think again about my place in the world. So, 2019 has to be an excellent time to make some serious changes to the way I live my life.
First up, I am going to resurrect The Rennsport Report and start writing things that interest me, not what someone else tells me to do.
There’s a bunch of other things in the pipeline, but I will wait until the new year to start banging on about those.
