This is the story of a post I made back in January of 2014. It was something that I put up on Medium when I was trying it out. I wanted to try my had at a couple of longer pieces and I ended up with a couple of successes (the second one to come tomorrow).
It’s currently been viewed 945 times and read through 362 times. That’s impressive numbers for something I never did any advertising or linking to other than the same way I do my regular blog posts. The difference in number of views is purely due to the built-in audience that comes from Medium.
There’s definitely a place for the larger, non-self-controlled site for certain types of posts. It’s about finding a way to fit them all into your style.
