Medium.com was a platform I considered and one of the reasons I disregarded it was because they did not have custom domains (at the time). I wanted to own my content and that's pretty hard to do if the only way I can direct people to my home on the internet is on medium.com. Currently, I publish here and on Medium.
I am interested to see how these changes are executed. Managing everything on your own can be difficult and more importantly, it takes time away from actual research and writing. Having Medium.com host my content yet allowing me to keep my brand (domain name) makes the platform very tempting to me.
I keenly will see how this is executed and also how much it will cost me compared to my current setup.
