I must say though
Becoming a Member is actually quite underwhelming. I thought joining would boost my overall experience on this platform in a big way. I was expecting a noticeable change. To be honest, I’m not really noticing a difference.
I’ve put off joining for a few months now and, given my recent boost in engagement, I thought I was ready to take the next step. I may have jumped the gun a little.
My first Member story posted and…
It was a big, fat flop. I really expected to get more interaction and engagement. I thought I was making the right move.
I hear all kinds of great things about Medium’s algorithm system. I was under the assumption that Medium would help get my “premium” story out to the eyes of others. I was expecting a warm welcome. Clearly, not the case.
And I did all the right things! I followed the guidelines, added an original image I created myself, and it’s a well-thought out piece. I don’t know where I went wrong…
First day probs
Ugh. I know it’s only been a day. ONE day. I was just very excited about this. I almost wanted to publicly ask if I was missing something; if I’d made a mistake in posting my Member-only story.
But, I realize the harsh reality: no one’s doing any favors.
Keep on keepin’ on
I obviously need to continue to build. I have to keep growing my network. I need to give people awesome content and reciprocate engagement with others.
All great things take time.
My 30 Day challenge is still on. This is Day 12. Almost half-way.
