Newbie’s Take on Medium’s October 2020 Changes

Thank you Zulie for an extremely helpful post and video!

When you’re new to Medium, as I am, you want to believe the best about the executive team’s motives. I’ve come across a few articles where the author’s take on Medium’s “moves” are at the other end of the spectrum. That’s disheartening because a new reader figures these guys should know what they’re talking about. The new reader wonders if they’re making a mistake by investing time and energy into this platform. I started on Medium five weeks ago, so I have nothing to compare to. I’ve been wading along the shore while most of you are more than half-way across the lake.

It must frustrate and discourage you to have the hard work you put into your videos become obsolete. I am grateful that you keep making them anyway. I’m encouraged rather than discouraged by the fact that Medium is “a living and changing platform” because that which doesn’t change deteriorates and dies. The best part about being so new to Medium is that I have virtually nothing to unlearn.
