Medium, SST, & Other Exciting Things

So I had a few weeks where it seemed like I was writing a new post every other day. Now, suddenly, I haven’t written one in a week. Well like anyone who’s late, I have a ton of excuses.

First is that I have been invited to use Medium. What is Medium? It’s yet another publishing platform, but it has quite a few things that make it unique. It was founded by Ev Williams, the co-founder of Twitter and Blogger, who decided to push publishing platforms into the next step. For the writer, it has a WYSIWYG unlike any other and it allows you to publicly share drafts with collaborators to be your editor-in-chief. For readers, the content is beautifully curated and the reading experience is fresh. It’s fresh because you can comment on individual paragraphs and unlike Tumblr or other blog sites, the sense of community feels bigger.

Does that mean I’ll be posting here less? Hell NO! While Medium is bad to the bone, there are things I can’t do there, such as Where part two of Music Takes Me. Damn. I just reminded myself that I’m overdue on that. It’s okay, I have an excuse! For my first Medium article, I’ve been doing some research, planning, and studying. It’ll be about new literacy in the digital age and you can rest assure that I’ll be cross posting it here.

I’ve also been working on some new developments with Short Story Thursdays. Namely, putting together a quick website and moving us over to a new email address that will make us more legal in our correspondence.

So yeah, busy. I didn’t even mention my day job and my three freelance projects. So if you’ve been reading, sorry for the silence. Until next time, feel free to leave a comment if you’d like to be a collaborator with me on Medium.
