There’s completely nothing to fret about as a result of – for you – there isn’t any different change.

Oh, aside from – and this can be a large bonus, relying on whether or not you really get pleasure from my posts or not – the truth that you’ll be seeing my emails extra usually and extra persistently any longer. As soon as per week, and all the time on a Tuesday.

Clearly when you can’t stand receiving my posts by e mail then this information will devastate you and it’s an absolute necessity that you simply discover the unsubscribe button on this submit proper now after which click on on it. For everybody else, this could all come as good and thrilling information. As a result of it’s good and thrilling: we’re returning to an period of normal weblog posts. We’re going again to the times (and the title) of A Mannequin Recommends – unbiased critiques and barely unhinged takes on the world out of your favorite erstwhile model. Greatest magnificence buys and guide suggestions and journey stuff and all kinds of helpful bits and items, interspersed with a few of the extra ridiculous life updates and observations that burst forth from my fertile thoughts.

 It’ll really feel like 2013, another time. Besides that it’ll be coming from a barely completely different place.

Earlier than you start to panic in regards to the olden days and feeling as if the whole lot is being uprooted; this web site isn’t going wherever. You’ll nonetheless have the ability to drop in for a pootle about within the archives and most of the new issues I publish shall be right here, too; however the majority of my writing will now be on Substack.

Why? Effectively, we’ve to maneuver with the occasions, child! There’s an entire submit about this – the primary submit in our new dwelling, really, and will probably be arriving in your inbox quickly – however in essence, when you make content material this present day then you actually need a platform to submit it on. So that folks see it. Except you’re a devoted magnificence weblog, otherwise you submit recipes, or issues that most people are prone to Google and hunt out, it’s very tough to get new eyes in your content material. I imply, how many individuals will actually be Googling “what does a merman’s penis seem like?” (The speculative reply to that specific query is inside this submit.)

I really feel totally lucky to have such an enormous readership right here, however a whole lot of my writing isn’t the form of stuff that’s essentially very searchable on-line. It’s there for enjoyment in the beginning. And it will be pretty if extra folks might get pleasure from it.

I’ve been trying right into a platform for my writing for some time and have chosen Substack. It simply looks like a very pretty place to be, the place it’s straightforward to remark and reply to feedback, straightforward to reshare different folks’s work and to construct up nice communities. You can too go away voicenotes, written notes and video content material to your followers and maintain stay video streams: it’s as if somebody has delved inside my mind and designed the precise platform that I’ve all the time wished to create and use.

And there’s positively a pull, for me, in that I don’t should construct or preserve any of that platform – simply go browsing and spend 100% of my time writing issues, relatively than spending half of my on-line life updating web site plugins or making an attempt to work out why the hell feedback can solely be WRITTEN IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

You’ll see (otherwise you may not, I haven’t absolutely labored out the settings but!) that there are numerous methods to make use of Substack. Some folks cost for his or her content material, some folks cost for all of it on there, others have their newsletters accessible fully freed from cost. My new weekly submit is totally free. In case you are receiving this submit by e mail then you’re robotically subscribed – I’ve merely moved my current subscriber listing over to the brand new supplier. You don’t have to do something in any respect – effectively finished, congratulations, be excited for the years forward!

In the event you ever change your thoughts, otherwise you hear folks whispering about that good A Mannequin Recommends on Substack – “it’s like listening to Girl Whistledown!” – then simply search me out and re-subscribe. There can even be an enormous banner on the prime of my web site with a hyperlink to take you to my posts, in case you get actually, actually misplaced.

In the event you’re not presently subscribed to obtain my posts by e mail (bloody hell, that is getting difficult!) then you’ll be able to signal as much as the brand new weekly posts right here.

Proper. This isn’t goodbye, it’s an enormous hiya once more. Hey once more to common posts, to extra writing, to a bit return to how issues have been earlier than shortform content material took over the web and all of us developed the eye span of a gnat. See you subsequent week. An enormous, real heartfelt thanks to those that have adopted for thus a few years and have seen me by means of so many various weblog eras and iterations. That is going to be the perfect one but and I couldn’t consider higher folks to carry alongside for the journey.
