Nostalgic Pinterest-Imitation Sites
The 'When I Was a Kid' Medium Looks Back

The ‘When I Was a Kid’ Medium site is one of the more popular collections by the new digital platform. It’s a library of nostalgia-inducing photos complete with captions that remind viewers of what was good way back when.

Medium was created by the same men who brought everyone Twitter and Blogger. What is different about this site you ask? There is Pinterest, Tumblr and countless other formats to publish out content, so what could possibly be next? It turns out Medium is very similar to Pinterest in terms of its layout. The micro-tiled posts allow easy reading and perusing, but the difference lies in the way content is organized. Each site has a theme, and some examples are ‘When I Was a Kid’ or ‘This Happened to Me.’ These collections can either be open to anyone to contribute or closed to the public and individually planned. The most popular posts are driven to the top of the page.

Medium is not like a personal blog page where someone’s personal and diverse interests are relayed. Instead, the collections are specific in nature.
