yeah, I know it must be hard to make everything work well on every platform. Kind of an engineering nightmare.

I do try to limit the long list of mentions to no more than one post every week or two. Just on posts that might benefit from a little extra boost in distro. Though on my serialized fiction, I have started tagging much smaller groups of people who have been reading — mostly because regular readers were telling me they couldn’t count on seeing new chapters show up in their feeds, even though they followed me and engaged with the chapters regularly. Sometimes Medium chose to show them new chapters, and sometimes Medium chose not to. So, out of sense of not knowing what else to do, frankly, I began to tag regular readers when I posted something new in a serialized piece.

It seems to be working in terms of a small, core readership following a serialized piece. Not ideal, I’m sure, but given people who want to see stuff not seeing it, I’m trying this out to see what happens.
