Mike Alexander, yeah, it puts things into perspective. You don’t follow the ‘number’, just as when you drive — you don’t always keep looking in the rearview mirror. You actually have to look forward to be able to get somewhere!
I actually have something else for you that you might enjoy.
I just published my first eBook (it’s extremely cheap, less than $1) and I put together all of the lessons I’ve learned about Medium so far. The principles and strategy that I talk about in the book can be applied to any type of blog.
I think you might like it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0847TTTXP
So I would love for you to check it out. I hope you like it (if you do — please, leave an honest review on Amazon, that’s the way you thank a writer nowadays).
Thanks so much. Wish you luck on your blogging journey!
