Medium is a huge step up from previous blogging platforms. Wordpress was so extremely awkward to use - full of tech problems you had to figure out before you even start blogging. Blogger was pretty awkward too. Medium did what blogging platforms should've thought of long ago - just let you type away, right there, without any tech headaches to figure out beforehand.

However, Medium isn't exactly a free-for-all blogging platform. Like all other sites, it has its own vibe - except the vibe is much more writerly SJW, in that narrow worldview, than more general sites like Reddit or Quora. Medium isn't exactly the place for anyone to speak their mind - the most-read authors just fall into that bougie, hipster, white SJW rhetoric. I don't learn anything on most of Medium - it's just the same tired old stuff, mindset, and writing style all the time.

There are a few good things on Medium - like Plan A Mag, an Asian American magazine that does say some important things that mainstream media does not. But even Plan A is in the realm of Ivy-educated, bougie Asian Americans.

If your content deviates just a bit from Medium's standard SJW narrative - expect to get almost no views, claps, or followers.

I've tried very hard to gain views and readership - but it's all failed.

Medium customer service can be terrible - at least, if they see your content and don't like it. All the customer service responses I've gotten were rude, condescending, unhelpful, and even flat-out wrong. They're very poorly trained, and don't even know their own platform.

Medium should allow individual bloggers to have a heading, logo, and categories at the top - like they have for Publications. Other blogging platforms come with templates, so it looks pretty. Medium's individual bloggers should have that same traditional blogging setup - right now, they only allow that for Publications.

Medium does sneaky things to authors they don't like - due to their own stigmas and biases. I've been put under the Paywall - probably so I'd have fewer views and followers - not that I was really getting any before. A follower clapped for me - then the claps mysteriously disappeared. That follower was prevented from clapping for some of my other stories, too.

Medium should be docked for introducing the Paywall, too - why should anyone have to pay to read a blogging platform?

Tip for consumers: A place for like-minded, bougie, educated SJWs to gather. Reflects the politics/mindset of SF. Rude, unhelpful customer service if they don't like your content. Medium does weird things to keep some authors held back. Paywall is a bad idea for a blogging platform.

Every day people get into real estate investing thinking that they will make a lot of money, but sadly they go into blindly because they aren't familiar with how to do it right. If you are getting into this type of investing, and want to know the right way to invest, you should continue to the following article. Keep reading for great investing tips!

Speak with a real estate expert to help you with your plan and see whether or not there are holes in your strategy. This will help you to get a good idea of where you stand and what you need to do to accomplish your goals. They may tear the plan apart and give you an alternative plan instead.

Marketing will be crucial to your success. Marketing is what generates your leads. Without solid leads, you are not going to find good deals on properties. Therefore, if something is not working in your investment plan, turn to your marketing strategy first to see what is going on and what can be adjusted.

I was enjoying the occasional article on medium and was very satisfied with the reading material they have but after a while I noticed that as a free user you have a limited amount of reading unless you pay a subscription. Can't afford it right now, I do wish there was some option to get more free reading instead of just waiting a month.

Medium offers a wide array of topics to choose from and most of the articles are well written with great insights about whatever you want to learn about.

I think Medium is a lot more than just a blogging platform. It creates a community of carefully selected content. Right now, I'm following several communities on Medium, and use it myself for my self-development projects. Medium created an environment where writing becomes easy and natural.
