What If Medium Got Rid Of Publications

All of them. No more publications.

I like these thought experiments. My first one received so many comments that I thought we could do another one.

Here it is.

What do you think would happen if Medium shut down all publications tomorrow?

Publications are a huge part of this platform. They were a huge part of my early success. I was lucky to get into a few of the largest pubs with my first posts.

Lately, though, it seems Medium is deprioritizing publications. They cut funding for many. As a result, a few big and popular ones closed their doors. A few smaller followed.

On the other hand, there are new pubs popping up every day. I’m not against pubs at all, although I wrote a quite popular post on why you should consider self-publishing.

What would Medium look like without publications?
