02 | Missing an outlet for little moments

I find the stats page on Medium so soul-crushingly discouraging I doubt I’ll write anything beyond a knock-off I put together in under an hour here again. Add to this the fact that comments and stories are treated the same, and the fact that a brief comment commending Glenn Beck for sounding relatively reasonable in a post about the story about Facebook hiding or downplaying conservative content got a flurry of green hearts while stories had views in the low double digits sent me spiraling into a pit of despair that put me off Medium for weeks.

I posted a couple things on Instructables b/c Bloominglabs is in the Makerspace contest (we’re going to get creamed by YuKonstruct) and between getting featured and getting more views I found it much more worthwhile to spend time putting together a post.
