Why you shouldn’t blog on Medium
Yann Girard

There’s a simple solution to Medium turning writing into a commodity: publish on your own site, and syndicate into Medium.

I don’t see it that way, for what it’s worth. I think Medium provides a beautiful interface for discovering new content, where content can stand on its own rather than be subject to the same old power laws. I think that’s a good thing.

I read your piece, and then checked out your site. Job done. If I click on the heart, I’ll see more of your pieces. That’s great for both of us.

They’ve got a great import mechanism and a publish API, so it’s pretty easy to own all of your content, but continue to be discovered here (and anywhere else you want to syndicate).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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