Maybe it’s not a bad idea. I’m not actively following anything on Medium, rather I’m following links from DN or other sources. But I find the reading comfort outstanding on Medium. Your blog also have a very good approach on typography. Maybe a bit too wide main column, a bit too dark p color, more clutter… there’s something Medium got right, very right, I’ve got to admit.
