This is the first Medium article I’ve read through to the end in a long time. I sincerely appreciate the quality of your writing. I agree, we don’t see great writing as much anymore. Everyone who has a business “needs” to have a blog, so no matter their skill level, they’re out there blogging instead of hiring a writer to do it for them. All this “noisy” content on the internet is largely crap, adding little value. If you look at the demand for work, however, this is what writers are asked to produce (I’m a freelancer and I see LOADS of requests for lists every day), and to pump it out very quickly.
Your writing was so refreshing, I really hope to see more of you out here. I’ll make the time to read Medium more often!
