I so agree with everything you say here! The first year or so that I was on here was such a great experience, and I’ve learned so much from feedback and responses given as well as all the connections and friends I made. Plus the money I made was not a lot but helped me cover the membership and a couple of other things related to writing like Grammarly, or may be attending an event. Now I literally make cents or maybe a couple of dollars, but what I regret the most is that none of my pieces get any views, and as such I don’t get to interact with people like I used to. Plus like you said it’s been difficult to find writings from the people I like and enjoy reading about. I like having a platform to put my writings in, but honestly what I loved about Medium is gone and it’s just no different than any other space now.
