It was fun while it lasted, but unfortunately, the honeymoon is over.

I am so incredibly bored with looking at articles on Medium and seeing the same type of article time and time again.

Am I responsible for this — yes partly. Obviously, I am the one following certain writers.

My passions are writing, books, personal development and spirituality, so I follow writers who write about these topics, but I am exhausted from seeing the same old articles time and again.

I think I am going to have to mix it up. Start following some writers who are writing about different topics.

What do you recommend?

Travel? Cooking? Health?

Give me something original please! If you can recommend some original writers on Medium I’d be tremendously grateful. I have found a few and I gobble their articles up with the thirst of a dying man.

I think I have made a mistake in who and how I follow people on Medium. There is gold out there and I feel I am missing out.

I want the unique, the original, and even the crazy.

If we can’t entertain, surprise, or enlighten every now and again what’s the point?

Well, I don’t see you being Miss Original I hear you all cackle. True, but I am doing my best and that’s the beauty of the platform, we get to choose who to follow.

I need to find the unicorns.

Any suggestions please reply below and if I see anything starting with a list or a ‘How To…’ you will be immediately ignored!
