My Medium Birthday
was December 4th, 2014.
I had a few scraggly stories, no direction, alone and uninterested in the community here.
For well over a year it stayed that way. If you’re brave enough you can still find those old stories. They’re the ones with 0–2 recommends. Mind the dust and the cobwebs.
A few months into 2016 everything changed. I had 36 “followers” and had never seen the little “10 recommends” badge. I’d barely written anything at all. This place was nothing but a storage area for a few stories.
Somehow between May of this year, I went from this:
Yeah, “Somehow…” I know how. I met some amazing people on here and BOOM. Chain Reaction.
**** I just hit 600 “readers” today ****
(I hate the term “followers”), and in all of those I’ve only ever lost 1 that really mattered.
How crazy is that? I love the shit out of you people. I hope you know that. This isn’t anything other than pure shock and appreciation.
(Oops! Make that 601!)
Giant smile right now.
P.S. if anyone is interested:
