Completing 6 months on Medium

Here’s my experience so far

On the 22nd of this month, I will be completing six months since I started writing on Medium.

So, what’s so special about this?

It is unique because I never imagined myself writing on a public platform.

Being a socially awkward kid my entire life, expressing myself in public has always been a difficult task. When the pandemic hit us in 2020, I was left with ample free time. I remember going back and forth on how I could utilize my time judiciously. Writing blogs was something I had always considered doing. However, my introverted self prevented me from going ahead with it. This was until I received a text last December from an old friend asking me to follow her content on BLOGGER. That was the triggering point. I decided to pursue my dream.

Since then, it has been quite a journey. I knew absolutely nothing about this field. I started in BLOGGER. However, I failed to understand how it worked. That is when I came across MEDIUM.

So, how’s my experience so far?

Incredible, I suppose, is the correct word.

It feels so heartwarming and fulfilling to see people making an effort to read my work despite their hectic schedules. This encourages me to continue writing. I can, confidently state that MEDIUM is one of the best blogging platforms available. The writer’s community here is extremely welcoming. Most importantly, everyone here is eager to help each other grow, which sets it apart from other websites.

I might not be a regular writer here. However, I make it a point to check out the content that is out there every day. That works as an instant rejuvenation. Over the last six months, I have had the privilege to come across a wide range of content. It has added to my knowledge and experience.

I hope to be able to write and post more frequently in the future than I do right now.

Finally, I’d like to thank everyone who has read and appreciated my work. I feel immensely grateful to each one of you.

An anonymous person once said,

‘Blogging is not rocket science. It’s about being yourself and putting what you have into it’.

I guess that is what makes it all the more special.
