I have written a blog (every day) since January 2006. When I joined Medium a few years ago (after reading about it in my hard copy, daily-delivered NY Times here in Vancouver, BC) I was delighted with their blog importing tool. I don’t import all my blogs and I modify some of them to reflect that I am writing from Vancouver. For many years, 1997 until the bottom fell out of print journalism a few years ago I was a magazine photographer and writer. I believe I write well. I do not get in the least upset about the fact that Medium has never picked any of my thousands of blogs for any kind of excellence. I write for myself and I am most happy that my family read my blogs and find out about me without having to ask embarrasing questions. My topics are mostly memoirs, photography and I never rant or give advice. It is fun to put stuff into Medium. I don’t expect more.
