Medium 3.0 is a place to read and write, now with a Partner Program so you can make money sharing your stories.
Some of the best quality content, neatly structured, soothing to eye, and amazing brandingCons:
I love everything about Medium, including the pace and direction of its growth
Content serves for education, decision, and delight and Medium lives up to this one hundred percent. I love the findability, personalization, engagement opportunities, branding flexibility, and the brilliant "shout from the terrace" feeling when I write and read content.
Beautiful branding, high-quality engineering, innovative product designCons:
Navel-gazing content, echo chamber effect, frequent pivots
I've loved Medium since the beginning, and stuck with them through multiple strategic shifts. Personally, I'm disappointed that the 'platform for media companies' model didn't take off. I would've loved seeing more publishers like The Awl and their ilk producing world-class content, supported by the technical prowess of Medium. But alas, that didn't pan out. Still, I'm happy to subscribe and see my money going toward creators.Cole Kennedy has used this product for one year.
