The Shortcomings I See in Medium

Since I began blogging (a Blogger custom site) in January 2006 I have posted 3365. Sometimes (I am 72) I forget that I have already blogged on some particular subject. My Blogger blog, has an infernally good built-in search engine so I can usually find out quickly if my memory is playing tricks.

A second solution is to put my name Alex Waterhouse-Hayward, Jorge Luís Borges [as an example] into Google and Google will give me just about every blog I have written on the Argentine writer. I find this astounding.

Through the Images section of Google I get many requests for the use of my photographs. Some want them free, but I do get very good paid gigs from serious magazines and newspapers in which all I do is press & send & invoice.

I believe I may have posted at least 100 essays (many are my blog repeats or variations) into Medium. My stats don’t list them all. The friendly technical staff has informed me that this is an issue yet to be resolved.

Another issue that I see here is that if I put my name followed by a comma and then either Medium or I get a couple of essays. Why is this? Is there a search engine for Medium, either internal or external?

Into Bunny Watson. I am a Vancouver-based magazine photographer/writer. I have a popular daily blog which can be found at:
