I was surprised by this, too. You write such funny and thought-provoking pieces Vishnu*s Virtues, I always look forward to your work.
This is why I have so much hate on the Medium algorithm. The really good stuff is being side swept for the generic dribble by the ‘top writers.’
Adriana Sim please don’t be discouraged. You’re another writer whose work is incredibly valuable. You GOTTA keep goin’!
The $100 mark is just a game and we’re the puppets but I’m confident you both (and many other amazing writers) will gain the recognition you deserve.
