Medium – Bring Your Stories And Ideas

What does the creator of Blogger and Twitter do for an encore. He creates Medium.com According to the founders  “Medium is a new place on the Internet where people share ideas and stories that are longer than 140 characters and not just for friends”.

I have never been a big fan of Twitter. The number one reason is that 140 characters is terribly limiting for me.

I’m just starting to use Medium and its already addicting. Why? It combines two of my passions.

  • Searching
  • Publishing

I am mainly using Medium on my Smartphone. Medium is available on both the Android and IOS platforms. I haven’t started publishing yet but am finding the search facility fascinating.  More to come as I gain more experience with Medium.

Yesterday,  I conducted the workshop. ” How To Create A Blog That People Will Read”.  We had 3 students. 2 students already had a blog using Google’s Blogspot platform and one student was completely new to blogging.

The student who never blogged is a Cuencana that will be developing a new business to help expats with needed services. The other student I am waiting to hear about announcing her blog and the third student is Sharon my wife who started her new blog on quilting.

Please look at the computer courses page for upcoming workshops.

This is Sharon’s homepage below.
