Do you believe this?
I always try to figure out what’s going on inside Medium.
Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I write stories that make people stay rather than leave — although it’s not all good news about Medium I share.
So, often I receive DMs or emails like this:
“Don’t get fooled. Medium is preparing for an exit strategy.”
I get it.
Since the day I started writing here I hear things like that. Medium is doomed and will die. I know.
However, I’m thankful for those messages because people try to warn me.
Medium is changing all the time.
Its business pivots are driving writers crazy, and the relationship often really feels like an ex promising you he had changed.
