Gr8 post, Drew… unlike the one I read just before 😇. I get your point that sites like Medium have democratized design, but nonetheless, to paraphrase Paul Simon

  • jam too much verbiage into the title
  • choose a poor / irrelevant / no cover image
  • sloppy punctuation
  • sloppy grammar
  • crappy content
  • not making use of the full available toolset, like indented quotes, bulleting, 😎’s, hyperlinking — due to laziness or lack of imagination

All the king’s horses, all the king’s men, all the fancy typography in the world cannot compensate for shit writing.

Cheers, Joe Varadi
