Seriously, the herd mentality of people saying why you should publish on Medium is INSANE. Everybody keeps talking about how great their readership is but nobody has ever looked at their numbers and traffic sources. [thread]
From Quora: "Medium is a large site that has way more readers and audiences then what you will get if you were to start your own blog."

This is completely unfounded. Medium doesn't promote great work and they don't help you build an audience at all.
Also from Quora: "Is it any different to building an email list for your business, and letting that grow over time?

Probably not. And arguably just as important."

WUT. WUT?? Please for the love of God, will this "digital entrepreneur" stop?
If you're going to say you're a digital entrepreneur, you can't ever say that building your email list is the same as getting followers on Medium. They are, inherently, the exact opposite because you own your email list and Medium owns your followers.
Every single person I've talked to about why they like Medium keeps repeating the same lines to me about "reach," and "audience." But I have yet to hear that anybody is seeing it drive a positive ROI for their business from Medium promoting their work.
And now to see that not only has @Baremetrics left, but @basecamp is on the edge of leaving... this seems a bit more obvious.
