Hey Medium … I’ve Got a Request

Come one guys, give us these little nuggets, it’ll be better not worse.

I love Medium.

If you’re reading this, that’s because you probably do too, I mean, that is why you’re here, right?

But I’ve got a couple of tid-bits that I will stamp my little feet until I get. They’re not even outlandish or crazy, I think they’ll be very beneficial, to me at least.

I’m writing this piece on my tablet. My nifty little iPad Pro, it’s been a godsend. I just went overseas and took it instead of my laptop.

Perfection…

I can write my stories and add photos and I can post them.

Just one problem …

I can’t submit to publications on my tablet or phone, and I can’t add my end of story image links either. I can’t even copy them from another story and plug them in here. I’m one of the nerds who makes social media image links at the end of my stories because I think they look nice. Usually I link my stock images as well to the page I got it from, I can write underneath the images, sure, but I can’t actually link them.

That’s a huge hindrance. I was considering selling my laptop after getting my tablet, but things like these limitations mean I need to keep it, and take it with me when I’m travelling if I want to do things the way I do and submit to publications at the very least. I want to write and travel, and submit while I’m travelling.

It sort of takes the portability part of Medium blogging away … doesn’t it …

Also Series.

I can edit them on my phone, but not my tablet as I do on desktop. (Very happy I can do this on my phone btw … just sayin’) but being able to do it on my tablet too would be super beneficial. I wouldn’t have to be jumping back and forth between devices. This is something I can live without, but would prefer to have if ever possible.
