So that’s the big thing that’s changing with this new app (and soon on the web). Our goal is to create the best of both worlds: An open and simple platform where anyone can publish — once or occasionally — that also allows for deeper connections between readers and regular writers.

I think the redesign is a good step in this direction! Customization options that let blogs have their own distinct feel is the next step, one that Medium is already working towards. Can’t wait to see how it goes.
PS — I’m from India and I’d love it if the MPP let writers earn from our articles. No pressure.
