Writers have been using publishing platforms for a long time, either to showcase their content or to generate income. Platforms like Medium, Substack or Hashnode pave the way for writers to get noticed on the vast web, by providing great SEO and easing the way of the writing experience. But content can easily be copied, difficult to trace back and there’s no guarantee that these platforms will be here forever.
