This is awesome.
I was reading an article, not on here, and it looks like other media moguls have contracts with Medium to publish here as well as on their own sites. I think that’s where a lot of these non-member articles in Medium magazines are coming from. I don’t believe the actual person is really posting it. I’m sure it’s some underling who works for the big name, posting for them, and any funds made go into an account for the major company. No one probably even monitors the account for comments, etc.
Once I realized this, I stopped reading. I don’t want my little piece of the pie divided up like that. I would rather the individuals I have cultivated relationships with get my two cents. Literally.
