How to Get Your Writing Noticed
Blake Powell

Hey Blake Powell, so — a little ironically—my first comment to you (where we then had a discussion about engaging with people genuinely) is getting more recommends than some of the posts I sat down to write with intention.

“I’m writing a post about _______ and I’m going to add an image, a title/subtitle and add it to my publication.”


“I have something to say about this piece, with no intention or expectation than it will become a story that I add to my publication”.

So I’ve since made my first sentence into a title, and I added it to my publication. The question is, do I dare add an image or does that then make it look more like a story and less like just a regular comment.

Heck, does the title alone make it less enticing to read, when looking through responses? Maybe this will be the A/B test, haha. How many recommends after I formatted the first sentence as a title.

Medium (and its readers) never ceases to surprise and confound me.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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