Things You Should Already be Doing as a Medium Blogger: But You’re Not! (1/2)

There are lots of thing you should be doing as a Medium blogger, that you haven’t started doing yet!

Har har! Sorry about the condescending headline! This is what you might call:

Clickbait.

Then again, if you are smart enough to know that I don’t know what you are or not doing on Medium, you’re probably smart enough to know that I know you are probably smart enough to know what clickbait is…

Kind of?

Anyhoo.

I do try!

Here are a few things you may or may not be doing, but that are in any case well worth considering.

Linking Your Social Media Accounts

It can be a lot of work to manually promote your stuff on social media. Try linking your Medium to Facebook and Twitter.

Pro Tip: It Helps to Actually Have Social Media in the First Place!

You can configure Medium to automatically post to Facebook and Twitter. I’m not aware of any analogous function for other social media sites, such as Instagram, Pinterest or Gab.

Starting Your Own Publication

Well, as the guy who wrote the blueprints to the Titanic said…

What’s the worst that can happen?!

Yes, I can joke about that. I’m from the North!

Sure that thurr’s right ‘n’ good old craic now, so it is!

Contributing to the Publication of Others

You may be as worth it as L’Oreal; but nobody likes a selfish bugger!

Got plenty of artistic capital?

Spread the wealth around!

Nobody likes a creative robber baron…

Share this Article!

OK, the last one is a lie, and probably a little bit of a naughty one, at that. I can’t promise sharing the article, or liking our Facebook page will make you a Medium millionaire…

Or a hundred-thousand-hits-a-week blogger!

But you will have my undying gratitude, along with that of all our dear Glossy News folks.

So nuke that button!
