Medium Plans

Fact is, I am just totally fascinated by Medium.
It’s not just that it’s apparently very easy to set up, and promises to pay me if a lot of people read my stuff, but I like the idea of a primarily word-based platform.
Yes, one can drop an image in and all that, but from what I saw while I was working on another project, on Medium word is king (or queen, or whatever). And I like it a lot.

Uh, yes… for the uninitiated Medium is a sort-of-blogging platform that features some classical elements of other social media – like the possibility to upvote articles, and a focus on quality of contents.
And I like it, and I’d like to try and use it.

Only, what could I do on Medium that I am not already doing on Karavansara?
It would be the right place, I think, for more extensive and less improvised contents. I could write longer pieces, complete with bibliography and all the whistles and bells, somehow connected with my writing.
Articles about history, and about world-building.
It could be an idea.
A monthly thing, well-written and researched, but that would not steal too much time and energy from my other projects.

I guess my Patrons would see the articles first, and then I could post them on Medium.
Create a publication, maybe. [which means finding a title, designing a logo…]
Heck, my Patrons could even request articles!
Ah… ideas ideas ideas…
What do you say, ladies and gentlemen?
Help me make a decision.
