Medium Story Sharing Checklist
#1 — Send a friend link to friends and family
At the beginning of your writing journey, your family and friends can be your biggest supporters.
Let them know you’ve been published or self-published an article by sending them a friend link.
You can find the option Copy Friend Link in the three-dot menu at the bottom of your story.
Ask them to help spread the word and share your story with their network.
Anyone who gets a friend link has free access to your story.
#2 — Post on social media and share it with your writing network
Social media is the best way to get the word out about your story. Take a few minutes to share your Medium story with people in your (writing) network.
You can find the Share Buttons in the three-dot menu at the bottom of your story.
