I Have Been Cheating on You….

You, my Facebook and WordPress followers. I have been working on getting published on Medium.

There! Now you know…and I’m just a bad Moody Mom!

But really, have you checked out Medium? It is an app and a website. Go there. Search for a topic. Enjoy. Just remember where you came from! Here, is a link:

My Medium Profile

My first impression of Medium was that the “articles” or “stories” were of top quality. And indeed, most that I have read were written by professionals in their field or “real” writers.

Then I figured out that Medium is like a WordPress in that anyone can sign up and post things. So I did just that.

But no one was finding my articles. No one was “clapping”(that’s Medium lingo for “liking”).

Then I dug deeper. In order to get attention there, you have to get published by one of the big Publications on Medium.

There’s also something about being Curated by Medium and that leads to Medium featuring your piece in their daily feed or whatever it’s called.

So, publications: Some are managed by Medium. Some are independent and have their own URL. For example, my favorite mental health publication is Invisible Illness. Check it out

Invisible Illness

In order to get published you need to submit a writing sample to the publication. Then once you’re approved you can submit articles to that publication. Then maybe, you’ll be published. But it ain’t easy!

So I have been polishing up my samples and….I have been approved by some publications. Then yesterday….,

I was approved by Invisible Illness!

Please excuse me, I must get back to working on my story for II. If you’ve read my Moody Mom posts, it’s one you’ve heard before. Only now there are no conjunctions and no sentences which end in prepositions.

This writing thing is hard!

Hugs, 😀❤️🙏💥

Y’all I’m on Medium Now!

I love Medium. It’s an app and a website that is sort of like WordPress only the quality of the articles is much better. Most of the writers are real writers.

You get to read 5 free articles a month. And to get unlimited it’s only $5 a month. Check it out!

The article I put on Medium is a rehash of one of my Moody Mom posts. The one where I talked about going to AA. But I really brushed it up and added more details.

This link will take you to it and it’s totally free. It would mean so much to me if you would check this out. Instead of “liking” an article, you “clap” for it by clicking on the little hand icon. Thanks for your support!

Gee, I’m flattered that you would like more of my real-life stories! I do have quite a few juicy ones to share. Stay tuned…

I will use more than just the top five for inspiration. Because this blog is for you…and a little for me. But mostly for you!
