There are a lot of different platforms out there for sharing your writing but not a lot of them work as well as Medium does. I discovered Medium through Scribophile (Yes, I do spend way too much time there). I was on the forum when I found a thread that is now over a 100 pages long with people discussing the website. With so much discussion I figured it was worth taking a look at.
It turns out Medium is a writing platform that allows writers to post their work to the website. It reminds you of a large blog with a lot of different contributors, or maybe a newspaper. Either way, the number of writers that power the website is pretty big.
I was curious as to what level of content I would find when I went to the website and was incredibly surprised. The three free articles I read for the month were all great. In fact, I even recommended one to a bunch of friends who also liked it.
You noticed that I said free there? Medium is
So I saw that you could become a writer at no cost. Guess what I did? Created an account. So far I really like it. It is a versatile writing platform with a lot to do. I have published 4 pieces with more to come. Here is my first piece: Adoption: A Road To Discovering My History.
The only thing I don’t like about Medium is the very long links that articles have. Try sharing one of these without copy and paste: https://medium.com/@iandustinscofield/adoption-a-road-to-discovering-my-history-8a3b52a6cdaf?source=linkShare-e35a2a8480d8-1535366475. That is the link to the article I mentioned above. You see how long it is, and it is a bit of an eyesore. But with that many articles from so many authors, I guess they had to come up with a solution.
I hope my Medium articles provide you with some reading entertainment.
