Can we petition for a “doodle” category?!? You could be the top writer in doodles!
I think you summed it really well with the final sentence of your response. And I think that’s one of the main points I was trying to share: that it’s okay to enjoy being curated without it defining the Medium experience.
I feel like I’m such a weirdo on Medium (for a lot of reasons). I really don’t spend much time trying to understand Medium the way so many others do.
I’m not sure if it’s because I’m an underachiever, slacker, not bright enough to follow algorithms anyway, or that I really don’t identify as a writer. Regardless, it’s a rather freeing way “to do” Medium.
It’s not that I don’t care about what I write or that I’m indifferent about finding any audience. But I’m pretty much fine with all of it happening organically for the most part.
Anyhoo, you’re a delight and I’m so glad you’re out there in Mediumland.
Thanks for the response, feedback, and support, Mark Starlin!
