I've been sick of Medium for a while, and deleted my account (even though I had 22k followers). It's become hard to use, a bad reading experience, and full of distractions. There are popups, and stuff all over the interface, and I can only read a few posts a month. And as writer, it doesn't actually do much for me.
So I figured I'd create a new platform for writers, with a totally different business model of payment OR patronage.
