Medium wants us to read the whole freakin’ thing now.

So I use this platform on a mobile device like 80% of the time. Medium changed it to where readers will not see the total number of claps until the end of the story… Which makes sense, duh. Seeing the numbers might skew your perception before you even look at it, good or bad.

Look at this lady, she has 3,460 claps… it must be pretty good!

Or

Oh, this post got 7 claps? Cool, yeah right.

Read before you clap folks — and no more running up the button just to even off the number at 100 or something stupid like that.

Did you know “mobilely” isn’t a word yet? It’s not. I realized this when I tried to type the first line of this article. (I tried ‘mobilly’ tbh). But think about it people:

‘Mobile’ is exactly like ‘wireless.’

We can do things wirelessly, but we can’t do things mobilely??

Wtf!

This should change, too.

Bored, uneducated, homeless — em dashes are my specialty. I write what I see, think, and feel. That’s it.
