Nathan, as I sit here and glance over your article, I find this opening like immensely ironic.

I see this article was published 6 hours ago — no claps, no engagement, seemingly no appreciation despite the high hopes (It’s a ‘members only’ post and included in a publication).

I feel for you dude.

Posting on Medium is a roll of the dice; you never know what’s going to standout or catch traction. I know this, I posted today too and found myself highly disappointed with the results.

And it’s good writing. Like, we both took the time.

Sifting through your post, it looks great. The format is on-point, the graphics pop, and it’s well-organized.

It’s so strange that engagement doesn’t always reflect quality.

Keep chopping wood, my man. Good and bad days.
