I got the idea to create a Table of Contents from Casira Copes. I like that she just has a list pinned on her Medium page with emojis for easy navigation, and I’ve recently felt frustrated by the Medium profile format (I wish profiles were more like publications and allowed for category bars up top).
Below you’ll find a list of my articles to date, organized by category (articles listed newest to oldest).
