I bet we could learn a lot about writing but many are generally not interested — people come to Medium as readers first; then we all think we could write, and often do what’s popular. Average readers strive to solve some problem or be enteetained, and if they are not interested in IT, they usually read motivational, love, politics, etc. So, new writers copy the influencers with an intention to earn some easy money or get popular quickly. Articles are written for a wider audience. BUT there is golden content and this makes Medium great.
