Hello World,

So, this is medium. What so special about this new blogging platform?

Ok, let’s try with formatting the text to bold and italic. Hmm… that’s nice, but I’ve seen it in Microsoft Office before.

Hey, where is the menu to change text color? wait a minute, I’ll google it first. Oh damn… no coloring feature available. No changing font-size, table, etc.

What you can’t do on Medium

But the default font type, style, color, and size is just perfectly chosen. I love it. Ah… inserting picture and separator is intuitive, I just do that unconsciously ☺ hey… it automatically change the smiley to appropriate icon too ☺

Next, we insert some links

Here it goes…. http://mashable.com/2014/05/09/16-minimalist-blogging-platforms/

I copy — paste it from a plain text. Medium automatically put it as hyperlink. So, what happen when I want to change the hyperlink text?


Ah… changing the text isn’t removing the link :D

Hey…. why the laughing smiley didn’t automatically changed to laughing icon??? *rollingtheeyes*

Let’s try some picture formatting…
