You Only Need to Fear the Word “Expert” on Medium If You Are One

  • 2 min read

I’m not a fake one and I’m proud of it.

“Kristina, I’m afraid of putting myself out there. I fear the word “expert” on Medium”

Let me explain.

When you join Medium you hear about its new quality standards and quality bar for what gets financially rewarded on Medium.

The word “expert” causes great controversy.

Fear not!

  • You don’t need to be NYT bestselling author Ryan Holiday or ex-president Barack Obama to be considered an expert.
  • You don’t need to have a title or write a book ( it helps though).

The term “expert” could also refer to a great deal of study on a subject or a life experience you can impart.

Thus, don’t be scared to take chances and attempt new topics on Medium because you never know what might work out.

However, there are many “fake” experts out there. Especially those who call themselves “experts”. So be careful!

I’m an expert IRL, no worries 😀
