Welcome to the Medium village, Annie Littlewolf! Jack is one of the most prolific community cheerleaders, as well as a heck of a writer. And, Violet is our kickass troll-buster and Trump-trasher.
Write, publish, write some more, publish again. It gets easier, less scary. No one will abandon you unless you express strong political feelings grossly contrary to their’s or you go to the dark side of trolldom which seems highly unlikely. Those seem to be the major reasons for abandonment on Medium.
Hope you delight and amaze us soon!
