How-To Guide for Medium Newbies

It’s a lot easier than you think

Would you like to benefit from hundreds of minutes of upcoming free content on the latest news on robotics, our research advancements on emotional intelligence or our major announcements at MainBot?

We are making it easier than ever for you to do just that, and all on Medium.

Why Medium?

We chose Medium as our main blogging platform because it’s super neat for beautifully and simply designed stories, and it’s super easy to install on pretty much any device you’re reading this on.

If you don’t have a Medium account right now, here’s how you can join this vast community of inspiring writers and publications, including MainBot.

1. Enter the Medium website

Super simple. Open your browser of choice and enter the following URL to your links tab: https://medium.com and it should look something like this.

First step taken! Only a few more to go.

2. Sign up to Medium

Now that you know how to get to Medium, the next step is to create yourself an account by clicking on the green top-right text that says Sign up. A box container will pop up to suggest you ways you can do that. If you already have a Facebook, Twitter or Google account, it’s probably more convenient for yout to connect with either and speed up the process a bit.

3. Did it work?

Okay, so after you’ve completed the sign up process, the one difference you’ll notice that will confirm everything worked out just fine is that at the Medium homepage, now on the top-right you’ll be able to notice a tiny version of your profile picture. Here’s how it looks for us.

4. Search for us

Up to here, you’ve managed to enter Medium and sign up by creating yourself an account. See how easy that was? Next, you may want to figure out how to find us, and there are two ways you can do that. You can either click on the search icon next to the bell on the top-right and type “MainBot” and then click on our name under Publications, or you can simply type this URL onto your links tab: https://medium.com/mainbot

5. Hit the Follow button

You’ve made it to our Medium site! Last thing to do is click on the follow button on the bottom-right of our header image, right above where the white space begins. Once you click on the button, it should look like this.

PS: If you’re a convenient person like me, now would be a pretty great time to save yourself some time on the next visit and bookmark our site.

And voilà! You are officially a part of our members community on Medium.

What does this mean for you?

As a part of our member community on Medium, you get instant access on your Medium homepage to the latest news on robotics, our research advancements on emotional intelligence and our major company announcements.

Now, these may not always show up as you’ll probably be following other writers and publications (and Medium has great stuff.)

So how to make sure you don’t skip a beat?

  1. A good old bookmarking onto your browser bookmarks is probably one of the best ways to easily access our page whenever you want without having to go through all the other Medium good stuff.
  2. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter. By doing so, our Medium stories will conveniently pop into your news feed as we publish them.
  3. Send us a message at our Facebook page with the words “I’d like to stay in the loop”, and automatically as we publish new articles we’ll make sure to send them to you on chat.

If you’re on a phone, we strongly recommend as well that you download the Medium mobile app for a better reading experience.

We hope this guide was useful and you were able to make it all the way through up to here! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask either on Facebook or at our email contact@mainbot.me.

Call to Action

It’s the Medium community’s responsibility to make great content more visible. We’d like to kindly ask you if you happen to enjoy reading any of our stories, to please upvote our content so that more people can read it and enjoy it too. It’s as intuitive as clicking on the heart at the bottom of each story, such as this one.


Thanks for reading! :) If you enjoyed it, hit the heart button below. Would mean a lot to us and it helps other people see the story.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
