While it is admirable to believe you are the Jay Z of the writing industry and everyone should know your background, keep in mind that some Medium writers may have no clue who you are. (Read: Me) That is not knocking your background. Even the Langston Hughes of the world may not read all other content or know every writer. Kudos to you for the arrogance of it all though.

Anyway, I agree to disagree based solely on my own workload and that of others I personally know in the news industry. This mindset is the reason old-school journalists complained about bloggers in early days. They too agreed it was more quantity versus quality. That is dependent on the writer.
