I have tried to make it a habit to leave 5 claps if I read more than a couple of paragraphs of any given article. If the author held my attention past the first few lines I want to acknowledge that. If I get to the end I decide how many more claps to add. This habit helps keep me from forgetting to clap when I finish an article. Even if I’m distracted by jotting down inspiration for a full response or simply excited to write a comment, the author at least gets those 5 claps.
