Wow. Thank you so much for sharing that food for thought with me, Sherry love! And I’m so grateful to have met you here! :)
Bear with me on this, mind you my mother told me I’m too naive. Hahaha. So, I believe that if I build my relationship right with my readers, they will stay and participate in the creation of a bond that (I hope) will last a lifetime. Sounds like something overly naive but I truly believe so.
As for the big names, I agree that Medium can certainly do better in promoting other writers. For this one, my line of thinking is that these big writers were once small writers too and I guess they’re being rewarded for their hardworks. The ones that have just been here and already making it big, well I guess they’re doing something that other older writers might have missed… I don’t know how their system is in promoting writers but to select a handful from 30,000 writers. I can’t imagine that would have been easy…
As for better competitors, there will always be a change I guess. It’s the only constant thing in life after all. For now, this place is like my bonfire in the woods. A cozy place to sit with you all and enjoy a cuppa :)
Thank you so much for reading and for the thoughtful response, love! Maybe we can discuss this in our little meeting (if you’re up that is 😁) Have a great week ahead, love! Looking forward to see you soon (hopefully)! 🤗
