Thanks, Dennett — I know, and I’m sorry for submitting an already pub’d piece. Thank you for the kind words. It wasn’t curated so I was hoping to find a new home for it. I run two of my own publications (both pretty new), so I understand how the process works. Although I have been able to get around the whole selective sorting by date on my main publication by setting the homepage differently. By selecting the “Featured stories” option instead of the “latest” option (which seems to be Medium’s default setting), I can choose whichever pieces of writing I want seen first (regardless of publish date), as well as where I want the other pieces, all throughout the page. Of course, I don’t have that many to contend with, being a newer publication. I imagine that will change at some point.
I just have a backlog right now and I’m trying to do something with it all since Medium’s writer guidelines just cracked down a lot harder (or rather, they began enforcing rules that had already been in place but not enforced; or making the rules’ definitions less ambiguous.)
At any rate, going forward, I will submit new pieces to y’all as I have ones that might fit in with W&W.
