Recently, I have been spending a lot of time working on creating my blog for medium.com.
If you haven’t heard of medium before, it’s a blogging platform that allows you to be paid for your writing through reading time. I like this more than WordPress because it doesn’t depend on your ad on your blog. Don’t mistaken my words, I love WordPress. Being on WordPress has changed my life and made blogging great, but the payout from ads is minuscule.
I wanted to try medium to see if it works for creating more revenue. Everyone would like to be paid for their writing and it definitely helps us writers to be compensated for our time.
I haven’t been on medium for very long though. Actually, I’ve only just made my account a day and a half ago. The progress has been insurmountable.
In my observations, I realized that medium is very much like a long form of social media. There are ways to give praise for each other’s work. You can give something called claps. I like that we can give more than one clap. It helps other writers to be found in the platform if they have more claps. There is also an option to follow other writers. I have been working on gaining my first 100 followers on the medium. In order to be eligible for earning money with your writing, you need at least 100 followers.
I honestly can’t wait to keep everyone updated on my progress with medium. So far, I think that’s it’s a great platform for new writers. Existing bloggers will find it even more rewarding because you’re able to use the platform to advertise your personal blog. And you can also repost your previous WordPress blog posts on to medium.
If you’re interested in medium, I would really appreciate a follow on my blog page. I will follow everyone back also! My link is Medium.com/@liachenhwang
