Welcome to Medium

1.
Medium is the best writing experience online.

Medium’s composing tool is truly what-you-see-is-what-you-get and has just the right amount of formatting to tell your stories without getting in the way. It’s simple, beautiful, and collaborative. There are no gratuitous sidebars, plug-ins, or widgets. There is nothing to set up or customize. When you write on Medium, you’ll know that your words and pictures will look great on any device; they’ll automatically adjust to the latest technology and even get better over time. If you have content from elsewhere, you can simply import it:

2.
You’re in good company.

On Medium, you’re not alone. You write beside and with other people. At the heart of Medium is the idea that people create better things together. Even professional writers need editors, and Medium makes it easy to get help before you hit the “Publish” button. These same tools let readers engage by offering feedback and ideas in context. The message is yours to control, with the tools to enlist the help you need.

3.
Find your audience, grow it, and come back to it.

We think great ideas can come from anywhere and should compete on their own merits. When you join Medium, you can both bring and build your audience — one that you can return to publish to anytime. Posts get spread around based on interest and engagement, with the help of algorithmic and editorial curation. And either way, you’re publishing into a thriving, pulsing network — not a standalone web site, which you alone are responsible for keeping alive.
