Writers on Medium to Follow
March 2017 Edition
For some reason, Medium served me up a ton of political articles over the past month. Weird, huh?
Well, as we all know, the reason I was fed to teeth with an over-abundance of essays centered around our forty-fifth president is this: that’s what I clicked on and the Medium algorithm genie interpreted those clicks as wishes for dozens more of the same. Like I always say—okay, not really, but I think this a lot—if that’s what you’re looking for, that’s what you’ll find. Look for trouble, you’ll find it. Look for the good in people, you’ll find it. Look for political essays on Medium … you get the point. It’s like it’s a universal law or something.
Anyway, this month’s listing is more about the articles themselves than about the individual author’s style. The following offerings all fit under the heading of Tools You Can Use. I say they because at their core, they each have a nugget of truth that I’m sure will serve me well in the future. Enjoy!
