It’s fair to say that Medium has definitely leveled the playing field, even if we can’t figure out how they did it. There’s no other way to explain it.

As somebody who currently makes a fifth of what I made before the payment metric changed, I don’t agree with your conclusion that the playing field is now level.

From where I sit, although the newbie and the well-established writer may have the same chance for success here, the playing field now favors folks who write longer posts and discounts the work of those of us who write very short posts.

So when are you going to let us know who your secret identity is?

I’m definitely curious.

Can you give me a hint?

For instance, am I following her?
