I'm getting sick of reading things on Medium. I need to understand what the perceived benefits are so I can understand how we could make alternatives like write.as more popular.
It’s the distribution and ability to monetize their content. I made like $10 off my post about my dad on Medium. And it was easy. The experience isn’t too novel anymore either.
@aaronpk right, I read something about it being easy for people to add your posts to their "publication" or something like that, so perhaps that's part of it - people think their reach will be biggest there?
