In Medium, you need to follow specific topics or “tags” for them the show up on the main page, or simply go to and browse through the homepage to see all kinds of articles from a variety of different people. You can also click on the picture of your face in the top right and click “new story” to write your own posts. When you finish writing a post and go to click “publish,” you’ll see an area where you can add up to 5 tags, so that your story shows up in other people’s pages to see, too.

It’s not like Quora, which is a question and answer format, Medium is a blogging platform specifically.

Entrepreneur, writer, editor, book coach, cat lover, weirdo, optimist. Author of “Write. Get Paid. Repeat.” & “Concept to Conclusion.”
