I seriously stopped giving a shit about curation after a few of my articles were curated and barely got any views or claps. I soon discovered it’s not the be all to end all that people lose their fucking minds over.
Just keep writing and doing you! Medium has shady responses to a lot of their issues. I’m thinking even they have no clue half the time.
But you can’t knock a platform that lets you write whatever you want to write about and actually pays you to do that. That in itself is gold for me. Most of the stuff I write on here I can’t write on my website for various reasons, so I spill my beans here and get money each month for that. tyvm Medium!
