When someone new to me leaves a genuine response on one of my stories, I will usually look at their profile page to see if they are a writer and what they write. I have found some great writers that way. But I have also found some readers who do not write. I wonder what the ratio is? I suspect there are more writer/readers than just readers but I know there are those who just read.
I am also curious about how many writers and or members there actually are on Medium. Thousands? Tens of thousands? Hundreds of thousands? Millions?!
