There’s one specific #tag you need to use.
Each day, new writers join Medium.
Each day tens of thousands of stories are published on the inspiring platform.
The competition is high.
You might wonder:
How to stand out from the crowd?
This December, when you hit the publish button, there’s one specific tag (=keyword, label) you should use to get featured by Medium’s editors.
Spoiler alert:👍 It’s absolutely doable to get picked by Medium’s editors.
What to write about this December to get featured?
In their latest newsletter, Medium invited all writers to publish a year-end retrospective on Medium.
“Think of it like your personal year in review, or a very public holiday card. What did you learn this year? How did you grow, what will you remember, and what insights can you share?”
To participate in the writing prompt, publish a reflection on your year — personally, professionally, or anywhere in between — and tag it “2022.”
Medium will feature a selection of the stories in this curated list…
on Medium’s homepage…
and will boost it on the network.
You can check out the tag page for inspiration.

What’s a tag?
When you publish a post on Medium, you can add tags (=labels) to your post that describe what your post is about.
You can write whatever you think describes your post.
Medium uses these labels to inform its algorithms for showing content and organizing it.
How do I tag my article correctly to get featured?
Use the tag #2022.
- When you’ve written your article, click on the three dots next to your notification button and choose ‘Change topics’.
- Then type in “2022”, as I did below, and add further labels that describe your post.
Pro tip: You can add 5 tags max to your post. Take advantage of all of them! #Writehere is just one of them.
