Still finding my flow with “Bloggy Medium”. Love that I can write and publish so quickly without worrying too much about it. But also worry about keeping a high bar in terms of what’s published (this probably wouldn’t make an earlier cut).

I think tweaks to the stream should make this a non-issue. (You should just write and Medium should decide what is surfaced to whom.) But removing a barrier to writing has created another small one for now!

Perhaps it’s best to write something small every day and if that kickstarts a longer post, so be it. Otherwise it stays short. The one thing this new format has nailed is the “cold start” issue. In order to write, you need to start writing. Obvious, but important!

General Partner @ GV (née Google Ventures). In past lives I wrote at TechCrunch, VentureBeat, and ParisLemon. A man of few words. Except when writing. 🍻
