I haven’t posted weekly hororscopes this month. Did you notice? Do you miss them? Do you care?
One of the reasons is because I asked people if they wanted to upgrade in December and no-one new signed up.
Not that I’m pouting or anything. There’s a bunch of wonderful people who already pay for the newsletter. I just want to make sure that they get their money’s worth.
I’ve been busy trying to figure out the future of this column.
I could kill it. I could keep going. I could make it part of my main newsletter Chapter 23.
Let me know in the comments what you’d be willing to pay for. I’m just one monkey typing over here. I’ve got to focus on writing what is popular enough to enable me to eat.
If you like Asshole Astrology at all now is the time to let me know. Don’t complain once it’s gone. There’s no going back once it’s done.
One thing I’ve experimented with is Substack’s built'-in podcasting feature.
I’ve even made two terrible attempts at recording the Asshole Astrology podcast.
Not really a podcast yet to be honest. More like a microphone test.
One recorded by a robot — ok, it’s only text-to-speech, but I can dream!
The other me reading it without any preparation or rehearsal.
Literally the first attempt done in one take off the top of my head.
I know it was pants, and the audio was terrible, but I forced myself to post it without listening.
I'm terrified of public speaking so that was the only way to get me to do it.
I plan to record audio versions of my articles in general, for Chapter 23, and maybe the astrology thing too.
I could do it using text to speech (much quicker) or get better at using a mic.
Both posts are linked to below for your amusement and edification.
So, which do you prefer? Robot or human?
