  • 3 min read

You need to keep the hula hoop spinning to get rewarded by Medium’s algorithm.

My friends and followers know that I’m not the type of writer who mums about my opinion about naysayers, clickbait, speculations, overnight successes, and toxicity.

Today I want to share another great approach with you.

René Junge is in the middle of an experiment.

Keep your hula hoop spinning and join René's experiment.

When the hula hoop starts falling keep going anyway.
