I clicked open my latest email from Medium, expecting the usual writer newsletter or comment notifications. But this subject line stopped me cold:

“Congratulations! Your story has been Boosted on Medium.”

What fresh witchcraft was this?

I clicked frantically and scanned the email.

It was real.

My story, Bouncing Back from the Great Bread Baking Flop, had somehow been chosen for the coveted boost.
