The sheer attention to detail and thought that Medium pours into building the service is admirable, and makes it a service worth using.So, this is it. Now that Medium offers full support for domain names, custom publications and even better writing tools, I’m ready to fully embrace it.I’m transferring everything of my own in to really give it a shot.
