I was looking through the stories under the Most Popular link and I’ve noticed a definite pattern. Reading time, i.e. length. Nearly every story flagged popular is a five minute read or longer. This is very interesting, given that Medium has introduced the concept of Short Form stories (like this one), yet the stuff people want to read is more in depth. I’m going to be exploring longer form pieces than I have in the past, maybe on a completely new subject for me.
