The Spirits Have Spoken—Medium Has Become A Thing

I'm not moving to medium—yet—but I'm definitely there.

Medium.com is an online publishing platform, almost like a blog, except if you get enough reads, you get paid some money. I started this blog as an active and ongoing update of my journey as a writer and published author. I’ve also used it to curate information and arguments that I found relevant.

Some of the entries here can even be cleaned up and presented to a wider audience with the hope of turning advice and experience into a little of the cold, hard, spendable stuff.

The only downside is that, unlike this blog, Medium exists mostly behind a paywall. That’s what allows them to pay writers (like me) and in some ways it helps push authors to become better at their craft.

I hope that you’ll follow me over to Medium, but I totally understand those who are uninterested in it, or simply can’t afford it.  I’ll still maintain this blog for the foreseeable future, and post updates on my works, so don’t feel like this place will become abandoned.

It would just be nice to get paid a little for all the writing I’ve done outside of my stories. With any luck, you’ll also see a higher quality of article from me (and perhaps you’ll see others that you enjoy as well). 

Give Me and Medium a Shot!
