What you said, Louis Chew, is all very true.

I’m curious Tiffany Sun and Louis Chew whether you think Medium strikes a good balance between pushing highly followed publications and those that are further down the food chain.

I know personally, while I haven’t had one of my stories blow up (yet), I’ve seen the power of what high-powered writers recommending my responses does statistically. You can quickly jump from a few reads to 100’s or more almost instantly.

I genuinely like Medium’s approach to crowd-sourcing quality, but it can be a tough system to crack into. It would be nice to think that being featured on one of the top tier publications isn’t as much of a requirement.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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