A Writer’s Safe Haven

I think Medium is a great website because it caters to people that want to share in-depth, well articulated written works. The majority of self-publishing and blogging websites do not focus on content. People are not writing thought provoking stories and ideas. They are posting pictures and videos which takes the focus off of the words. I feel that today words come second to illustration and videos.

Medium is a place where people who love reading a writing do not have to deal with all the clutter that excessive pictures, videos, and widgets create. The website has a simple design just like books. I love the design because it helps inspire you to create, which is great when you are trying to overcome writer’s block.

Even though its still in the entry level stages, I think Medium will be successful. Watch what the co-founder, Evan Williams had to say about the website below.
