This is such an underappreciated aspect of Medium. I’ve had blogs that appeal to a single niche topic in the past, but Medium allows the freedom to throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. It’s creative writing nirvana. Some can go to publications, some are one-off riffs, and some could even turn into a book.

I’ve used Medium to publish random thoughts, drafts of articles that were killed by magazines and one of my most popular posts started as a tweetstorm.

So thanks for that freedom, Medium.
