Nobody could’ve said this better. Plus, it helps to think about writers like John Gorman, Kris Gage, and Zat Rana. They’re hugely successful. How many times have they been featured — once, twice? The stuff that does get featured may not always blow my mind. But it’s usually good.

Medium *has* to build partnerships with the conventional publishing world for its own health. At first, it worried me. But what I’ve seen is my views go up as a result, not down.

Bringing in established authors and publishers attracts new audiences to this platform. When they get here, they might find our work, too.

That’s a positive way to think about it.
