I’m sorry to say this, Daniel, but you wrote yet another rant two days after I wrote this to all the people who complain about life hack articles on Medium:

While I totally agree with your premise, I have to observe that your articles are basically doing the same thing — getting huge numbers of views and recommends, while taking attention away from writers who have written something meaningful — as the people you complain about.

And look how much attention you sucked away from these wonderful stories:

The sad thing is that the articles I linked above are all original, personal stories and they all got a total of 62 recommends as I write this, while your rant about not seeing good writing got 200.

If you wake up with another hangover, please read this first (hopefully with an aspirin). Maybe it will make you feel better.

UPDATE 6/10: Daniel, you inspired me to come up with a recommended reading list for the week. I hope you enjoy it:
