I agree with this. I am starting to experience the same phenomenon as well. Is it because Medium is so beautifully laid out? Is it because Medium is easy to work on?
Be that as it may, Medium has helped me to find a joy in writing and letting my word out again. This is precious. I discovered some outstanding writers and virtual friends with whom I can spend discussing for hours. Medium interestingly has also helped me rediscover Twitter for that matter.
I visit Medium every time for fresh discovery of new ideas, design, and deep thoughts. I got to say I am rewarded. I learned the best strategies for deep writing, thinking in paragraphs, typography, design, story-telling, structuring stories. It’s a very different, ahem, medium to play with.
There is also a beautifully concealed layer of people connectivity that I started discovering lately that I mighty like. Perhaps I am not at all driven to find an audience here, I can take Medium in a more relaxed pace to find interesting articles, discover knowledge, and jump from topic to topic.
Why not? Let Medium be my home page. A beautiful relaxed zen of reading that freshens with new insights every time I come back to it.
