"Can we all please stop using Medium now?"
Good post by @firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you really must use Medium, publish the post first on your own blog and then use "Import a story" feature within Medium to post it there too. You get best of both worlds that way.
Given the issues with Patreon/Medium/etc, what's the suggested PAID CONTENT platform for those of us without the privilege of being wealthy enough to give away our work for free?
@eryn @switchingsocial for me personally it's more about ownership and control of my content. i prefer to own the platform where i post the original piece and then use all these other proprietary (or open source) platforms to syndicate it, connect with people and help spread it. if patreon/medium is where the people are (or where the money is), you should be there in order to reach people (and perhaps eventually guide some of them to a more libre option)
Kinda hard to take this opinion seriously, considering he's using Twitter. I mean, calling for people to quit using Medium because it is a walled garden by using Twitter, itself an extreme example of monopolistic walled-garden environment, seems a bit hypocritical.
@rcode3 @markosaric Overall, the call to publish stuff on your own platform and to syndicate it to other platforms is perfectly aligned with the general idea of #indieweb (that is imho favorable). You could also see mastodon as a "reduced" walled garden in some sense, because if the mastodon instance you "live" on goes down, you lose your content as well unless you made a backup.
