List of Medium collections
I couldn’t find a comprehensive list of Medium collections—specially organized by number of followers, so I thought I’d make a list of my own.
As a reader of Medium, it’s kind of hard sometimes to find collections that are interesting to you (their search page only shows a few results at a time). As a writer, the most important thing is picking the right collection(s)—or you’ll never get noticed—but there is no easy way to do that.
This is a list of Medium collections, organized by category/number of followers (as of April 25, 2014).
All collections with lots of subscribers are here (although I’ve also added some interesting ones or some in a few categories where there’s not a lot of stuff).
