When I started on Medium I was a young writer full of energy, ambitions, and dreams. I remember those days as if they were only 10 months ago.

Wait… they WERE 10 months ago.

If you’ve been following us for a while and have read our bio, you know that Mindsmatter is a blog about psychology and mental health, that’s why we have such a cool name. I, personally, feel a great passion for this topic, not only because I love writing about it but because I feel that it has a positive impact on whoever reads it.

However, throughout these long months of writing on Medium, I have met many great writers, discovered wonderful Pubs, and learned a ton of many topics. Thus, it has become increasingly difficult for me to stay in one niche.

Cryptos, A.I., space flights, religion, movies… I’ve wanted to write about many things, so I have tried to find a link between these topics and mental health. The problem has been that I haven’t found how to maintain a coherent editorial line for the blog. How to keep someone from wondering “Why is this mental health blog writing about Freelancing and Personal Finance?”

This is why the Lists feature has made my life easier and now I don’t lose my head every time I want to write about something new.

I present my first two lists
