About a month ago I returned to Medium to discover my stats were suddenly jumping. First in small amounts — 1 or 2 views a day, and then by a dozen or more each day. A month later I find I’ve surpassed the amount of views I’ve had ALL YEAR on a rival blogging platform. Granted, I’ve been publishing fiction on the other platform, and had reserved non-fiction for here, but it’s made me question whether or not to come back to Medium on a more permanent basis. As I continue with publishing my collection of school essays, I look forward to seeing how the stats change. 2021 certainly seems to hold a lot of possibilities!
