Hello! Some of you know I’ve been writing on Medium, in addition to The Heart Opens.
Here are a few housekeeping tips for followers:
First, I’ll be writing almost everything on The Heart Opens and then importing the posts into Medium, so you will not miss much.
On Medium, I will be posting from behind a “paywall,” which basically allows me to be paid based on how many Medium readers engage with my writing. Medium has features like “clapping” and highlighting. It’s been fun to use them and cheer other writers on.
From behind the paywall, Medium Partners can see all of my posts. Medium users who are Non-partners can see a limited number of these Partner posts per month. But again, you’ll see all of those on The Heart Opens, so it will not affect you if you are not a Medium user.
Now it gets a little more interesting:
There are Publications within Medium. I have been accepted as a writer for a couple of these, and I’m happy. The posts for these publications are not released behind the paywall (so they are open to the public, therefore accessible to you even if you are not a Medium partner).
These are also the only works I won’t post on The Heart Opens first. Instead, I will post a link to these pieces so you won’t miss them. Here is the first example: I Really Have to Pee…but First, Meet Susan. You’ll love it.
So there you have it. My web grows softly; my heart follows. #yeah
