Love this! Medium is at its best when it helps lift writers up. I was discouraged by their changes to the Partner Program last October, particularly for how it affected new writers. I recently found out about the various Medium Facebook Groups - It's good to know there is such a strong community of writers dedicated to helping each other. Thank you for writing this piece!
