Over at Medium.
OK, technically, it’s just a tolerable drip, but it’s bound to be a spill soon! I swear that it is!
Read this post to understand why. Or at least part of why. I want this model to succeed, I’m hopeful that it can, and I want to be a part of it when/if it does. I also want to support Medium’s effort to support writers, and I urge anyone with an interest, who can do so comfortably, to do the same.
The other part of my motivation is that Medium taking design and security, spam control, software updates and technical problems out of my hands shifts my focus toward the things I actually want to do: write a lot, and draw a little.
I think it’s helping me to sharpen my skills as a writer, too. (As fun as blogging can be, I can’t say that it’s been particularly useful, for me, as a wordy whetstone.)
I’m so enamored with Medium, right now (and Bear, too, but that’s another story for another time), that I didn’t even want to take the time to post this tiny blurb here on my own domain.
If you’ve bothered to follow Sharonda.net, please visit me on Medium, as well. It’s a different direction from the one my writing takes here, but it’s a detour I’d love to turn into a destination.
