Thoughts on Medium.com

Hello, there, dear comrades! I am not fond of the aforementioned source myself, but… What are your thoughts on Medium.com from a perspective of a poster? Would you find it worthwhile to post your writing there? What are some of the platforms you’d use instead? Thanks!

Movim… Write.As… For a start 👍

Maybe even a Gemini capsule.

Thanks for the recommendations! What would you say the audiences are like for these?

Movim can produce blogs with links that can be shared.

Write.As is federated, so can reach across the Fediverse.

Gemini is fairly limited in reach

Write.as looks decent … if you’re living in credit card turf. Not really helpful for people who live in more advanced parts of the world. :-/

WriteFreely is an option, completely free. Here’s a list of instances.

Personally I don’t want to be on a proprietary platform. This was once the reason for me to leave Blogger. I do use options that are FLOSS and can be self-hosted. BTW: I now use WordPress and Movim.

I think you should definitely post on Medium. Despite being an ad hell, you will get greater exposure than other options. It’s also important for left -wing writing to exist platforms that a lot of people are on.

It might also be worth posting the same texts on more than one platform.

If medium uses markdown it could be trivial to mirror

Thanks, that is a valid point.
