I have been actually wondering if it’s deliberate to get people to join the site? And therefore read more other content?
I only use RSS readers as well, but not having an easy way to follow medium writers I like is the only reason I joined. (I may still go back to setting up ‘email me when this page updates’ reminders for writers I like, but I’d rather not bc it’s so bothersome.’
Thanks for this though, saved me a bunch more messing around trying to work out how to do it myself.
