I love the wide group of writers on Medium.
I love the writing experience.
I love the reading experience.
I hate the inflexibility of publishing. – No scheduling, no on-publish triggers to share on social media!
I hate the curation limitations – collections that take months for someone to read something and decide to add it to their collection.
I hate the SEO-unfriendliness – what’s with the crazy urls that only machines can read. Friendlier names are easy enough to do, why are they missing on a ‘premium’ platform?
I hate that it is closed and unextendable – maybe this is in the pipeline and maybe simplicity is the goal, but still I want to do things with the platform that it doesn’t currently do and I feel frustrated that I have to wait on who-knows-who to build it.
For those reasons, I’m out.
