Hi Barry. Good to see you again. I've taken a few hiatuses myself over the years.
Every platform is what we make it in the long run, because they deliver more of what we click on. Medium is one of the best of the bunch.
I've started using the mute feature and discovered the algorithm learns real quick. If I mute all the stuff I don't want to read, it learns what to show me and creates a Medium I can enjoy again.
Thanks for visiting and reading. Hope you're well.
