Thank you Mike Cernovich for writing this and encouraging aspiring writers to try out Medium. Truth is for new writers, not reaching an audience is a bigger risk than not having your own platform. I’m excited to start posting here.
A huge benefit I’m finding from Medium is that I can see where readers highlight sentences and passages in my writing. I can see exactly what sentences and ideas are resonating with readers. Even if I am not sure if their reaction is positive or negative, I see there is a reaction strong enough that they are interacting with my post enough to highlight passages. This is huge for me and I’m sure would be helpful to any writer.
