From Drupal to Medium: automated cross posting

Back in February, I automated some of my content workflows. I use the Scheduler module to publish posts and have them automatically pushed into Buffer to be shared across my social networks. I'm attempting a new experiment once this node publishes. This should show up at my Medium account, https://medium.com/@mglaman.

I don't agree with using Medium the canonical blogging platform for companies. But I know there are plenty of users on Medium, and it provides its own virality. It also pushes content to platform readers that they may find relevant. So, this is my attempt to bridge to new readers.

The Medium API docs allow you to specify a canonical URL that is "The original home of this content, if it was originally published elsewhere." So, here goes nothing on this experiment!
