Why Medium.com?

Over the last seven years, I’ve been quietly building content. I knew that when I was ready make the push, I needed to have a history of content already piled up. Well, here’s a start…

I’ve written 15 books on Smashwords with over 4,600 downloads, published a syndicated weekly column for the last four years, podcasted 200 weeks in a row, developed VPS cloud control systems where I manage web servers for small business, and have been laying in a foundation for supply side sourcing—all while living in Asia and not running one single ad.

Having accurately predicted the Trump victory in February (and posted my pretty accurate map on Instagram), I decided that I knew a thing or two. It’s one thing to have a following, it’s a whole other story to predict the unexpected.

So, I was randomly scrolling through Leonard Kim’s Tweets when I stumbled on a video where he talked up Medium. I’d seen it before, but was too busy getting things done. Once I took the time to get my profile, I love it.

Back-end post sharing isn’t allowed on Facebook or WordPress. Twitter was great, but is now over-saturated, over-botted, and over-spammed. When I saw Medium’s awesome WordPress plugin, I realized that they were for real. I’m for real. I’m looking for other people who are real.

I get the feeling that the power users and forerunners from five years ago are on Medium now—and those are the guys I want to hang with, for real.
