I get how overwhelming it is to manage Medium’s notifications, engage with writers’ posts, comment, and clap.
I was there. Until I took a deep breath (sometimes I need to follow my own advice, no?). Took control of my mailbox.
- I set up filters and labels in my Gmail for Medium and the publications I edit for. (Submissions for the Illumination group stream in).
- I archive without flooding the inbox and just glance at the label once a day — and empty it, thus keeping it clean and manageable.
- This saves time, keeps me stress-free to enjoy interacting.
So — if you would like help with setting this up, reach out to me. I am trustworthy and dependable.
Oh, no compensation is required. D’uh!
