I have been there on more than one occasion. I had a great post this week, loads of claps, a good number of comments and would believe a 66% ratio.
I have made it I thought to myself. Maybe we can have a meal out on the money.
$3 I made, can’t even buy a burger. Still back to the drawing board.
I don’t appear to be popular enough for the trolls either. I have encountered two in my time on Medium.
The first was a troll, no question about it.
The second was a harsh comment, but with reflection maybe not that bad. The writer, a week later, complimented me on a post so I felt redeemed somehow.
I think as parents we are all guilty of forgetting how much our children look up to us. I make sure my little one see’s me with a book in my hand more than a phone. I am proud to say she is turning into a little bookworm.
I didn’t identify as gay until I met the right person. As long as we are with someone we love, then who…
Thank you so much for your kind words.
I work with young people, from the worse backgrounds. Even though they have all be excluded from school, you can clearly see the ones from a good home.
I was a Christian before I met my partner and I think in essence some of me still is. I am just so conflicted…
When people ask me about my sexuality I only answer one way.
Love the person not the gender.
God how I hate labels. I am just putting the finishing touches to a post that deals with my hatred of labels and the idiot questions I’m asked by others about my sexuality.
Loved this post.
Just like that I have 10 new writers to follow. Actually, in truth 5 I already followed the rest.
I would add Tom Kuegler to that list, despite how busy he is, he has always supported me and answered all my stupid newbie questions.
I made exactly the same point on a man’s post yesterday. Probably in all truth, on the said man’s post.
If readers didn’t want to read this type of article. Then the views would be down and less people would see it.
Basic economics, supply and demand. The readers demand and we supply.
