It is not that I don’t read any stories in publications, as I do, but, it is the concept itself. Medium has already provided a platform to publish on. Why put a box within a box? I also don’t care for the process; waiting for weeks to get any kind of a response from a publication, only to have your story rejected. So far, Medium hasn’t rejected anything I’ve decided to publish, no matter the topic and the process is pretty simple and straight forward. I can’t say the same thing about publications.
