I support the Evergreen Model

And here’s why…

I don’t want my old stuff to get lost.

I was actually unaware of the new feed, and just today posted my “Greatest Hits”.

I pinned it to my profile so that when someone sees my profile, it’s the first thing they see.

They can click on it and see all of my best posts, organized by subject matter.

They can also see what Publications I’m involved in, and any Series I create.

I did this because I want to make sure some of my old content gets seen.

I was afraid new content was being prioritized because that’s my experience here on Medium.

I’ll post something and it’ll get 100 reads in the first week, but 6 months later it gets maybe 1 per month.

That sucks because some of my best content is content I wrote a long time ago.

And some of my best content hasn’t even been written yet.

When it’s new, it’ll get it’s burst of new traffic and then what?

It fades away with the rest.

There needs to be a healthy mix of the two.

And I also suggest everyone create a “Greatest Hits” to pin to their profile, and update frequently with posts you’re most proud of.
