Announcing $1 “Recommends” on Medium
Dave Schools

I went back to paying the $5 because I read a lot on Medium. The new software sucks but oh well.

Unlike you I don’t go by the number of recommends. I usually get “into” this or that author and read pretty much everything they write. For a while anyway. If someone recommends or comments on one of my stories I look at their profile and if I’m not already following them and they seem interesting I hit follow. I’m especially prone to do this when people seem like newbies. In this way I’ve found some unexpected treasures such as Bee Millz.

If I make it to the end of something it means that it didn’t bore me so I hit the heart. You say no taking back recommends but there would have to be say a one minute window to take care of accidental heart tapping.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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