Medium Blogging Tips: 10 Lessons Learned Reaching 10,000+ Followers
Written by Casey Botticello
I’m generally not the type of blogger that gets hung up on arbitrary milestones. So while I enjoy seeing my number of followers on Medium grow, it’s something I really only make note of for my own records, at the end of the month.
However, there is one milestone that I remember standing out to me when I first started blogging on Medium:
Medium accounts that had 10,000+ followers.
As Medium has grown as a platform, this milestone has become much more common then it was three years ago. Still, when I glanced at my Medium profile today and saw that I had indeed reached the 10,000 follower threshold, I was thrilled!
I remember how precious each follower was when I started writing on Medium. I even remember having so few followers and paying such close attention, that I would actually notice when my follower count dropped by a single follower!
While it isn’t feasible to track my followers to that degree of specificity now, I’ve tried to largely utilize the same strategies that got me my first 1,000 followers.
Here are 10 Medium blogs tips for increasing the number of followers you have.
