start your own publication

A few weeks ago, Medium announced they want to support self-published authors to flourish without publications.

This is the way Medium wants it. All the winning entries of the Medium Writers Challenge were self-published too.

Here are 4 benefits of self-publishing:

  1. You’re your own boss — you can publish whatever you want when you want it!
  2. Your article can get chosen for further distribution (CFFD) by Medium’s editors too.
