As much as I've appreciated the non-money bennies of writing on Medium — far greater readership than I've ever gotten on my personal blog, connecting with other readers and (mostly) thoughtful commenters, etc. — I have to admit that when I do take a look at my stats, they're all going in the wrong direction. Ditto with my curation rate, which was stellar a couple of months ago but has dried up like the Mojave Desert after a ten-year drought. I truly don't think the quality of my writing (I eschew the noxious term "content") has deteriorated, in fact quite the reverse. I shall persevere as I still enjoy the aforementioned perks of Medium. But it would be nice to understand what's going on.
