Lol, Mike, you keep pushing my “Well, actually” nerd button, and I held my fingers on the other comment because 1)I understood what you wanted to say and 2) it’s kind of irrelevant. But now you go and mention getting not-writers off Medium again, and it’s before my second cup of coffee, and I’m just itching to respond…

No, we don’t really want the not-writers to get off medium. Do you know what you should call people who do not write but comment, or comment on comments? Readers. And we all actually want those to outnumber the writers. Because we are all here for the audience. And since we are busy writing, we don’t have the time to be dedicated readers (Can any writer who doesn’t have an overflowing bookmark folder with stuff they know they just won’t get to please stand up?)

Yeah, readers can be annoying. We need them though. Medium wouldn’t survive without them.

Writer of fiction, blogs and erotica. Frequency in that order. Popularity in reverse.
