Well, I am now at a stage where you were some time back. A newbie at medium. Somewhere in the back of my head I know that the only way to get “recommends” and audience to read what you have written is to keep writing and that’s it. It’s as simple as that. It has been just about a week or two since I started writing in medium and sadly, I have got just 2 “recommends” so far. My most recent post has got zero reads and zero recommends so far, but this won’t deter me. Medium has allowed me to express myself freely and all that matters is the content that I write, just like you said. I love writing and this love isn’t something that’s newly developed. I have been writing since my school days, but have not been able to find a domain in the internet where I could showcase my writing, my style and my imaginations to a larger audience.
All these years, I have been restricted to the feedback given by my kith and kin and so naturally, my writing is yet to get exposed to the outer world. Medium was that domain I happened to find in the internet some time back. Albeit my presence is yet to be known, I am simply going to keep writing till that happens (and I hope it does soon- Truth be told, I AM a little hopeful for that day to arrive).
Now all I have to do is to make sure I stick to a writing schedule. Thank you for this article.
