I had almost 8,000 followers on Quora, Emily Zamora. Now, two months after I started on Medium, I have over 800 followers here. That’s a much faster pace than I gained followers on Quora.
On the other hand, I produced substantially on Quora. I wrote a lot of answers, some of them very long and technical, some of them more story telling. Quora distrubuted them heavily. I had over a million views a month.
That’s not duplicatable on Medium. Unfortunately, the reader base seems to be smaller here by orders of magnitude. The writer base may be comparable. It’s the passive reading component that’s missing.
So, expectations need to be different.
So you know.
