Congratulations, on going viral and catching the eye of Tim Denning ! I won’t be entering the writing contest. There’s something about it that feels disingenuous and manipulative, although I can’t quite put my finger on why. I guess I have only so much energy, and I would prefer to spend my time in the pursuit of those ideas and explorations that really matter to me, and that perhaps might matter to others. I do hope that whomever wins the contest will be a relative unknown on Medium and not a big shot. Can’t help it. My cheers are always loudest when the underdog wins!🔆
