I’ve written 28 major posts on Medium in 2017. No wonder I’m a bit winded.
My Medium stats tell me I have posted well over 200 stories, but I think every comment is a story over there, which is interesting and sometimes useful, but also a little confusing. So let’s go with my number.
I dropped Medium stats into an XLS spreadsheet to do some weighting and sorting, to produce the chart above. I learned a lot about which stats I could trust to tell me about quality content.
Turns out my top posts, and my top 5 in particular, are showing some interesting trends. If I’m writing about writing, I tend to do well, especially if I’m writing about writing on Medium.
The Medium highlights feature is proving a strong bellweather for success.
I’m posting on this over on Medium as well, with more in-depth analysis. Would love your thoughts.
