Didn’t you quit Medium a year or so ago?
Bridget Arnett Buckley

I have quit and returned many times.

Unlike most people here though, I started out not being paid, then I was being paid, then not being paid, then my audience numbers shrank, then the company started bringing on all these other publishers, people who were being paid.

So, I had good reasons for quitting then. I still do.

It wasn’t until I accepted the last paragraph I wrote — that this is nothing more than a fancy blank page — that I grew more comfortable with things.

Basically, have zero expectations and you will be okay.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
