I am now publishing on Medium, a place where over 10000 writers from around the world contribute, and where there are many publications to which one can submit one's work, or create one's own publication.
Readers can follow writers and publications. By so doing one creates a personally curated network displayed in a section on Medium's home page,
There is original writing on every topic, from cooking to quantum physics. Many well known magazines are on Medium, At five dollars a month it is a good bang for the buck.
I have been accepted as a writer for three publications to date,
The Start Up is the most active Media publication,
Be Unique, which is a smaller and growing publication, and
Dialogue & Discourse, my favorite Media publication, thus far.
As I joined Medium was undergoing a policy change whereby writer compensation is no longer built on applause, but on the time readers who have a $5.00 a month membership to Medium spend reading one's posts. It has to be the paid membership because that is the source of the income distributed to writers. I have spend a decade in uncompensated independent research reported here on this blog as I developed my own writing skills. Now since our business no longer has a production, (which I intend to get back), I need to develop another stream of income. This will probably take a while on Medium, where some writers are pulling in a high end income, but I think I have what it takes. If you have been following this blog, or even just new to it, you can support my writing and research by joining Medium and following me.
Since Medium requires that every article be unique and published in one place only, that means I have to do the same thing here. I think that is a good policy which will encourage more thoughtful writing, which I am all for. Since my time is limited, I am posting the links to my Medium articles, which I might have formerly posted here, featuring the posts that specifically relate:
