How To Choose Medium Tags For Your Blog Post
Okay, so now that we know how to add tags to our Medium posts, let’s go over how to choose which ones to put (because we can only use 5).

That should give you a nice start.
Also, I’ve created a Google Document containing ALL the tags you can become a Top Writer in. Technically you’re supposed to take my free 5-day email course to get access to this, but since I love you I’ll link it right here.
