How to manipulate your profile feed to alternate full-length stories with short-form pieces.

I’m having a blast playing with short-form pieces. Short pieces can be anything under 150 words, but I’m treating mine more like long-form, in-house social media posts.

Tactically, though, I was worried about a profile feed populated with shorts burying my full-length pieces.

Here’s the solution: Use the pin story feature to alternate long and short stories. You can rearrange your stories as often as you want by unpinning and re-pinning in the reverse order you want them displayed because the last thing you pin takes the top slot.




Everything Shortform is a publication for Medium stories 150 words and less. Rapid reads to capture your attention and direct it towards further reading or short expressions readers can gulp down in one bite. Use Everything Shortform to get your point across quickly.
