I’m a writer and reader here. I’m glad Medium isn’t pay to play, and I’m so glad that claps no longer factor in for earnings. But I don’t like how, if I read a story about X, the algorithm will immediately recommend more stories about X. I want to find fresh ideas, not a cyclical turnout on the same subject matter. I can circumvent this by going to publications and following certain writers, but then I feel like I’m missing out on the new people joining the platform. I wonder if you have any suggestions for searching or seeking out stories?
