Medium is the medium

Forget the medium is the message, Medium is anything but medium, the message is Medium. Well, according to Quincy Larson, you might as well not publish on a blog if you want readers and should switch right now to the content management platform Medium. You can, of course, find me, David Bradley Sciencebase on Medium already!

Meanwhile, here are eight of Larson’s reasons for abandoning his blog in favour of Medium distilled into a medium-sized list:

  1. Unless people really care, your blog post is going nowhere
  2. People don’t have time to read your blog post. They’re too busy reading Medium
  3. Medium makes it easy for a community to author and distribute articles
  4. Moving to Medium is pretty safe
  5. You can subdomain a Medium publication to your own domain
  6. You can also easily export your articles from Medium if you change your mind
  7. President Obama publishes his speeches on Medium
  8. Medium is relatively new and its traffic is still growing
