If you’re just getting started, go to a place where there is a built-in audience that has native sharing. Don’t start with a domain. Start on Medium, Facebook, Instagram and experiment. (Chaz Hutton grew his audience on Instagram from nothing to over 100,000 and has a book coming out now, too) When your audience starts to grow and you start to find your voice, then get that domain.

Thanks for the clear advice. I think it’s getting harder and harder to figure out if you should create content on your own domain or some else’s. Medium is hard, I think, if you have several topics you want to explore (like work and family) as it’s focused on following people.

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