I think one of the negatives, however, is that, as you say, the successful writers don’t really give a shit about the rest. Sure, they write articles that give advice, but they also make money off of the engagement. Out of curiosity, I have looked to see the responses/comments by a number of the more successful writers, and in most instances, there just isn’t that much. Medium, unfortunately, doesn’t seem to be all that different than the rest of the American marketplace; self-serving behavior wins, and overly generous people suffer. So sure, be positive, but honestly, that will only serve the minority. Thanks for writing though.
