Disagree!! If I have made it to the bottom of a piece, chances are very good that I want more from that same writer. I also use mine to cross-promote between pubs – something Medium will NOT do for me. Do I think it can be overdone? Of course! But don’t discourage embedded links all-together. They are an improvement over mid-story pointless images if you ask me. As long as they are relevant and not overwhelming, I say point me to your other goodies!
