I’ve been working on a newsletter-first theme for the last few weeks. I just launched it today.
It’s called Substation.
The idea is to flip the usual “blog” style theme and put the newsletter front and centre. The homepage features the subscription form and posts are shown in the Archive.
Substation supports free and paid memberships so you can very easily create a member-only or premium newsletter, and you can quickly add comments with Cove. If you’ve ever thought about self-hosting a Substack-like newsletter (without the 10% fees), now you can on Ghost!
This theme wouldn’t have been possible without the recent advances in Ghost’s features, so a massive thanks to the team for all their work!
Substation is $29 but you can pay what you want above $19 for the next few weeks

I’d love to hear what you think or if you have any feedback
