Last week I discovered Medium...and what a find. There is so much inspiration there. (I think I am pretty late to the game here as usual! whoops)

The blurb on the website describes it as this:

Medium is a new place on the Internet where people share ideas and stories that are longer than 140 characters and not just for friends. It’s designed for little stories that make your day better and manifestos that change the world. It’s used by everyone from professional journalists to amateur cooks. It’s simple, beautiful, collaborative, and it helps you find the right audience for whatever you have to say.

I have read a few articles over the past week and here are some of the ones I particularly loved and was inspired by:

The Design Process: A pyramid

10 Ways to share your creativity and get discovered.  (this is a shortened down version of Austin Kleon's book that I mentioned earlier this week. I would totally recommend getting it)

Blogging vs Building

Entrepreneur = Artist

I would recommend getting lost in this space and discovering lots of interesting thoughts and ideas from people all over the world. The website is really clean and simple and utilises big full bleed images. I want to become a better story teller and maybe this would be a place to start experimenting. It seems like a great community.
