Are you ready for a new blogging platform? Described as “Not too big, not too small”, Medium is all about the words. It allows you to give more information than the 140 characters you’re confined to on Twitter but to be more concise than a regular blog post. We’ve had a look at the site and we’re really liking the idea of it. Here’s everything you need to know about Medium:
You share your thoughts, ideas, opinions with the Medium community, rather than having to push for your friends to read them and share for you. Not only does this give you a wide range of articles to explore yourself, but it also means your posts could reach audiences you never thought they’d reach.
Medium isn’t for the typical beauty or fashion blogger BUT, if you have a short/long think piece to write about beauty or fashion (or anything else) then it’s the perfect platform to house it on the net. Don’t be put off if you think it looks too “serious”. The beauty is in the lack of design and ease of use and means that this blogging platform certainly isn’t reserved for a particular group of writers.
At the moment, Medium is in the beta process, so only selected people can produce content, but you can register and sign in with your Twitter account, which will allow you to start giving notes and feedback on existing posts. You will be notified once features start rolling out to everyone. We’re definitely excited to see how it’ll grow!
