Medium: First Week

Results from my first week on Medium. I got off to a gangbuster start (by my standards, I don’t know what’s considered a big number on Medium), tapering off after three days, but with a little uptick on the seventh day (more readers on Sunday?). But the traffic is almost entirely due to one article (linked to on reddit), and the numbers are negligible for the others.

So I’d have to say I just got lucky with the one, at least until another article takes off. And I don’t know how I feel about the response feature, seeing it treated as a first class citizen in the stats page. Medium is a nice writing platform, but I can’t yet stay it’s a good publishing platform. I’m starting to regret trashing my self-hosted essays and blogs, but what’s done is done….

Like what you read? Give technicat a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
