Overwhelm Is Optional: Manage your Substack notifications (in ~2 minutes)


No transcript...

There’s so much talk about overwhelm and burnout that it feels like it’s starting to create overwhelm and confusion. No longer!

It’s up to us to make Substack the place we want it to be. If that means loads of notifications for you, go forth! If you’d rather quiet it down a bit, managing your notifications is essential.

Here’s how to adjust chat notifications on the Substack app.

Join the 2024 Substack Success Cohort

Veterans and newbies, if you’re doubting your Substack, frustrated by trying to figure out the platform, tired of cobbling together information, and not seeing the kind of growth you want, join me and a group of highly motivated Substack writers to inspire and help you to achieve your goals. It’s modeled on Substack’s now-defunct grow program and it’s amazing.

A one-year program for highly motivated Substack writers (veterans and newbies) who are ready to grow.
