In a more relational Medium, if your style is to use all-caps headlines, to omit headlines, to ask for 50 claps, or to ask for crowdfunding donations, go for it. As long as your story is high-quality and not overly promotional, you won’t have to worry about losing out on distribution anymore.
And I can keep writing about Medium itself as much as I want — even though I won’t get distributed, my followers will still get my work.
That being said, I’m still mostly going to stick to my boring technical articles that get distributed across the platform.
I’m super curious if the changes are helping August Birch, since he has talked about being in “curation jail” or having a “curation ban” because of how he structures his articles. Better view counts on new articles now, August?
