Interesting and I loved the info Shannon. I discovered something when I stream my articles to other media such as FaceBook and Twitter. The readers, most of whom are uneducated as to how the “clap” system works, read the article in Medium and then give me “likes” on either FaceBook or Twitter. Not quite the affirmation I’m seeking, but then I guess a “like” is a “clap” is a “like”. Looks like I won’t be quitting my side hustle anytime soon….
