Weekend Summary May 23, 2020
One Medium article was curated. The other big news is one of the articles was curated by The StartUp, Medium's largest active publication followed by +638,802 people. Wow.
Another surprise was that I am now a "Staff" (?) for two publications: The Startup and The Ascent. I can submit my article to these publications. This is huge because all the "how to write/succeed on medium articles" suggest you do: submit to a publication! This is a big step.
(I am a writer for two publications and now, submit articles for a wider audience!)
For those who are unfamiliar with Medium.com and its publications, it is:
Publications are shared spaces for stories written around a common theme or topic, usually by multiple authors.
It's a big deal because when your article is curated, it will have a chance to be read by more medium readers, which will increase the Medium partnership earnings.
I emailed Heated and no response. I looked at other publications and didn't find a one that my article would fit.
But now, they gave me an opportunity to submit - Yay!
I am working on a free ebook, "The how of Sushi: I came up with two covers and asked Facebook friends which one they liked. 5:4, and the blue cover was the winner.
(Blue is the winner!)
I am planning to finish this by the end of next week, maybe the first week of June.

Comments from the Articles I Read This Week
A Guide to All the Restaurant Safety Guides
This is a collection of the various restaurant opening guides after the lockdown.
I believe the intent of the article/writer is good - to help others by providing information. What I find to be the problem is this: Too much information.
Business owners, especially the restaurant owners, are going through what could be the once in a lifetime crisis right now. They are under a lot of stress and have no time going through every detailed information like this to try to figure out what to do.
Alternatively, what I think to be the better solution is to offer guidelines visually. What I mean by that? Make IKEA instruction-like no words pictures only restaurant opening guidelines.
It will be easy to understand and clear. A picture tells a thousand words.
