Medium Update

By Odyssa

September 27, 2021

Medium is for readers, learners, writers, lovers, techies, journalists, TV personalities, politicians, fiction writers... every person can find their interest in this website. I've been a member since 2019. I'm a huge fan of the ease of use and its interface. As a writer, I can write about anything on it and it's great!! Here's a quick Medium update for those who are interested in joining and/or currently members and writers. 

I discovered Medium in 2019 after reading Cal Newport's book, Digital Minimalism. I was looking for one source of reliable, entertaining, and thought-provoking articles.

Why Medium and not other content creation websites?

I found Medium had everything - news, opinion, information, education, entertainment. From being a reader, I shifted into a writer. 

From the time that I joined, I've written about yoga, long-distance relationships, books, dating, and living simply. I've published over 100 stories since then.

Through Medium, I gained some confidence to publish this website last year, take a few writing courses to work on my writing, and start reading for and writing my first book this year. Despite the absurdity of the last 1.5 years , we're all hanging on, trying to make this 'quiet time' in our homes useful and meaningful
