I’m in agreement with you, Gail (and I like how Mark Starlin said it); I post on Medium because I like to write, and I like the (very mainly positive!) feedback I get. I’m sorry about the folks who hoped to make some income (or at least pay for membership) by posting members-only stories, but my payback has always been the ego-boost. Medium is this enormous room with a mind-boggling number of conversation pits, and I can wander in, sit down, and just listen to a friend who’s talking or strike up a conversation with a stranger or get up and share my stuff. And I’m good with it. 😊

P.S. How’s Mara doing?
