As a reader of stories, I'm really liking Medium. Recently our local business community made the national news, yet the best stories I read were written by people who actually knew and worked and lived with the subject of that news. And, those stories came to me via platforms like Quora, LinkedIn Pulse and Medium.
So, I'm trying my hand at sharing stories on Medium, too. I'll continue to experiment and learn as much as I can about various platforms and find out what rhythm, method and place fits my interests and aptitudes.
But, no matter where this experimentation takes me, I'm confident it'll include places where "in-the-moment journalists" hang out, i.e., daily short form writers and story tellers.
I've already found quite a few kindred spirits of that particular tribe on Medium, so I decided my first story on Medium would be a few hundred words I wrote about #remotework and the importance of empathy in better managing remote work situations.
Writing that post last year is what got me to thinking about nextwork.io and finally committing to blogging regularly about a subject in which I'm not only very interested, but which no doubt has very important economic and social components and consequences.
Here's a link to the Medium post which contains a link to its original home on Jessica Miller-Merrell's wonderful site, Blogging4Jobs.
