Im not sure how many places online there are to do this but this one seems cool
I mostly read these articles to know how really hateful the liberal writers can be. I sure hope there is a small number of us that agree with most of these writers. What a shame for our country to be so mean.
I like that the writing is different then the mainstream media, but not “fringey”. Rather the writers simply not focused mainstream of the moment news because of their niche or offer different views then popular more conventional publications. The writers offer unique views and by and large are edited and well presented. This is civic engagement they way it supposed to be.
Each small snippet is an opinion, idea or experience of someone else, much like you. It’s nice to open up and view your own experience from a different viewpoint.
I really dislike the fact that in order to read articles at Medium, you must pay for a subscription. In 2021, there are a plethora of free publications plus blogs. While I do understand the necessity to earn a living in today’s times, its very disheartening to simply be able to “preview” information then be told to sign up for full access. As such, I am removing the app.
Not too hot, not too cold, Medium is just right 👌🏾
Medium is without a doubt the best app I have ever downloaded and is tied for my subscription (it’s competition being Master Class). I love how there is a limitless wealth of new and exciting voices. I love that to be recognized you must be good, and the best content is the stuff that makes me look at my own life. Medium is my happy place and my home. So grateful for everyone that worked to make this space possible.
I love the idea of reading a quick article about something I’m interested in instead of browsing news or social media when I have a couple minutes to kill. But, if you’re conservative or even center there is no place for you in this app. I can’t even browse a minute without seeing several headlines regarding extreme leftist ideology. The only hint of the right I could find were articles from years ago so I can only assume conservative voices are basically extinct. But if you’re a lefty this is your echo chamber!
They have a great UI and good features for blogs but I will say there is a great deal of extreme liberals that constantly write angry piece, usually attacking “whiteness” or anti-American sentiments. And Medium puts them on their home page. Not a lot of moderate Democrat writers, mainly angry ones. If you can stay away from the political posts you’ll be in clear water.
