the link is REALLY working this time (video about Medium publications)

Published over 1 year ago • 1 min read

Good afternoon Reader,

Not sure what's happening to me this afternoon. Thank you for your patience! Here is the same email you may now have received three times (sorry), with a functional link.

Medium publications are literally a make-or-break for new writers. If you're a new writer, they're often the difference between 10 views and 1 follower and 200 views and 20 followers per story. I found this out the hard way when I started a brand new secret profile -- publications made SO much of a difference to my growth as a "newbie."

So why are so many publications leaving Medium? P.S. I Love You, The Ascent, and now History of Yesterday have packed up and closed their doors.

I had the chance to interview Andre, the editor of History of Yesterday, about why he took his publication off Medium. And I made a video going into the history of publications on Medium (tumultuous), if they matter to writers (they 100% still do) and what writers should do about the publication question (continue submitting to pubs if they want to grow).

Hope you enjoy:

In case the embedded video doesn't work, here's the link.

Happy writing,


P.S. I was sponsored by Glasp in this video! Glasp is a social web highlighter -- kind of like highlighting on Medium, but across the whole web AND you can follow other people to see what they highlight.

One of the best and easiest ways for you to help me is to engage with my sponsored content. You don't have to buy anything or do anything special. All you have to do is click this link. If you do love Glasp, you can sign up for free.

Thanks! 😊

Good afternoon Reader, Medium has recently introduced a new and kind of wild option: instead of paying $5/month for membership, you can choose -- voluntarily! -- to pay $15/month. Quick reminder: Medium is a free blogging platform. Anyone can join and start writing immediately, for free. To join the Partner Program and get paid for your writing, you have to be a paying Medium member. As a Member, you also get to read unlimited paywalled Medium stories.

Good afternoon Reader, If you’re like me, you hate looking at your old blog posts. It’s like hearing stories about what you did when you were drunk — I really said those things? I really wrote those words? That’s the odd thing about writing. Unlike other practiced skills like weightlifting, it’s hard to see obvious improvement day-to-day--or even month-to-month. If you want to see how you’ve improved, you have to look at your previous work. Once you can bring yourself to look at your past...
