Scrubbing Medium

Or why you might consider it.

Written by LWFlouisa January 26, 2019

I've been increasingly been becoming frusterated with the general direction medium has been taking for a while, and currently trying to move my posts over here. There is this one "indie media" journalist that's been somwhat bugging the crap out of me for a while there. And I don't really like how that platform seems to encourage click bait.

It makes it impossible for me to really brand myself as an author, but essentially rigging the competition against me, and flooding the landscape with what's essentially junk.

So today I decided to scrub my Medium posts. I'm not sure I'm going to bother publishing on there anymore. And for anyone concerned about their privacy, I would encourage you not to as well. It really serves as filler, when I want my digi-vitamins.
