While in the beginning I integrated almost everything directly into my hugo-micropub tool, I now build separate tools for new features that can be used independently (like this one or this).

I sometimes publish links to Medium articles. Often the articles are behind the Medium paywall. This gets the author a few bucks per month, paid by “Medium members”. I’m still a Medium member until March (I paid for one whole year), but I won’t extend my membership after that, mainly because I don’t get enough value out of the subscription (many articles are clickbait or do not interest me). But in itself I think it’s good that authors are paid directly by readers' money and not by tracking readers.

Like of: PESOS for Pocket

I should definitely checkout how to PESOS for Pocket. I use Pocket quite often, but don’t publish all links on my blog. For that I still need to improve bookmark support and than use something like IFTTT to publish recommended or starred articles to a bookmarks section.
