My Substack One Year Anniversary!
Thanks for making THE RIGHT WAY the #1 Substack for conservatives
We just reached the one-year birthday for my Substack, The Right Way, and so it’s time to say a few words about it.
When I posted my first article on this site, “How I Murdered The Weekly Standard” on August 20th, I didn’t know much about Substack. That first post went out to 500 people that I had compiled from an old email list— mostly fellow journalists. At that time, I was working for Newsmax as their chief White House correspondent.
A lot can happen in 12 months.
By early November, The Right Way had 10,000 readers. I was pleased that my first post received about 48,000 page views. I was astonished that my August 30th post — “How The National Review Sold Its Soul To Google” — received more than 128,000 page views.
Substack seemed like the future to me in 2021, but the reality was that it had already displaced corporate media websites as the best place for journalism to flourish without government-sponsored censorship.
