Brad Feld wonders — since he’s primarily posting at Wordpress — whether crossposting at Medium is worth it.

My sense is that it is not worth the trouble if you are simply reposting. But if you create a topically-oriented Medium publication, and cherry pick a subset of your posts for that, maybe it is.

Like him, I am struck by how few people are reading on Medium, relative to the followers I have at on Tumblr.

An added observation: Medium seems to be limited to the technoids, media, and start-up scene, and hasn’t broken out to the greater population. Kind of like the first five years of Twitter.
