In Hamdardy with Hamza

This (that Medium does not hear or promote us, the small authors) is a hot topic of discussion among many authors using Medium and a popular tag is “Small Author Problem” or something like that. It seems that this has been brought to the attention of the Medium staff. The small authorship problem will remain (I guess this is the “skeumorphism” in the publishing age). As long as you have your readership and they are engaged, I think you can grow by the natural law of social network effect (the famous power law distribution). You have a voice, you are getting heard, and then you need to put out creative stuff day in day out. I think that tends to be the mantra and line that Medium takes.
