December 2021 Update

Hi everyone! I just wanted to stop by and say how grateful I am for this blog. Thank you to everyone for supporting me, following, and reading my content. It has been a whirlwind this month. Everything flew by so fast. I can’t describe how different this month has been than previous months. I feel like so much has changed and that I have grown more than ever in these past few months.

Medium has been a challenge to keep updated. The momentum on medium fluctuates a lot. On some days, I will have a lot of view. And on other days, I don’t have too many views. It’s okay though. I still enjoy writing and I will continue to write on the platform. My link is Medium.com/@Liachenhwang for my medium articles that I have written. If you haven’t checked out medium before, it’s a platform where you can earn money through your writing. Medium pays based on reading time. And I have only been on the platform for two months. I still consider myself a novice, but I’m learning a lot about medium each day.

Another thing that has changed is my perspective on family. I’ve been writing a lot about family since I’ve started my blog. It’s something that I struggle to handle and I still do not have a good family dynamic for myself. The family that I have created by myself with my husband, on the other hand, is great. However, the family that I was born into has not been so great. I know that they don’t support my writing or my blog, so I don’t feel especially guilty writing about this topic. It’s just something that I have to get off out of my mind. I really want to start anew and I don’t want this dark cloud in my life anymore.

Besides the family drama, I have been great. I have been working on preparing for my upcoming recital music recital this weekend. I will say that each day has been a lot better since I’ve left all of the drama behind.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you have a great day and I’ll see you back here for more future posts!

I’m late for blogmas! ⏰

Oh my gosh, where has the time gone?

I can’t say that I will be doing blogmas this year. I tend to spend my weekends relaxing with my family. I stumbled upon many blogmas posts tonight and they are amazing. I love the Christmas decorations and the thought that everyone has put into blogmas this year.

I wish I had prepared somehow for blogmas. I tend to only write about teaching or writing. I rarely write about own life anymore.

I’m completely new to blogmas. I don’t know what I should be writing. I would love some advice on how to get started for this year! I’m great at writing a lot of posts in bulk. I don’t think it’s too late to start since it’s only December 4th today.

When it’s Monday, I’m going to try my hand at decorating a banner for blogmas. I love Christmas and I think it’s a great idea to write about Christmas this year on Pocketfuloflearning!

Happy blogmas everyone!

My Updated Progress with Writing on Medium in November 2021

Hi, everyone! I am beyond excited to be updating you on my progress with medium so far. Since I have last written, my follower count is in the 400s. I was previously at 125 followers. It has been so exciting to watch my follower count grow every day. There are times that I wish I had started medium earlier because of how simple it was to create an account. I think it may be even easier than creating a blog on wordpress. If you are thinking of creating an account on medium, I would highly recommend it! It can be an addition to your existing blog or a support account for your main blog.

I have a lofty goal of reaching 1k followers by the end of this year. I don’t know if it’s possible, but I want to have at least one goal in place to keep myself on track. I have been making sure to update my medium account and to share it as much as possible.

As of today, I have made $10 on medium. I think that’s pretty impressive for only writing on the platform for a month and a half. I read that other writers only made less than 30 cents in their first month. I know that it’s not quite as much money now, but i’m sure that it will grow consistently once I have more articles on my page. My current article count is 26+. Each article that i’ve written has been slowly growing and making a little amount of money each day. The $10 requirement for a payout from medium isn’t true. I’ve noticed that it doesn’t matter how much I make that month, medium will stay pay out the money to my account. For example, if you only made 30 cents that month, medium will pay you the 30 cents to your account. I started with only a goal of making enough money to buy a cup of coffee and it has turned into something that I can actually make money from.

Update on my progress in medium

I have been working on improving my medium account for the last five days. I haven’t been on medium for very long, but I currently have 15 articles and 125 followers.

I have definitely been working very hard on medium. I didn’t import any of my old blog posts. And all of my current content on medium are new. I’m proud of my progress so far. I can’t wait to see more progress in the future.

The reason why I have been publishing so often on medium is because there is a medium partnership program. I want to join the program because it allows writers to monetize their articles. I requested to join the program yesterday. Medium says that it takes up to 3 days to hear a response back from them.

The most important part of joining the program is making sure that you meet the requirements. You need at least one article published and 100 followers. The requirements aren’t too much to ask for, but they are definitely difficult when you don’t know anybody on the platform.

I had to work very hard to get to at least 100 followers. The reason why I worked so hard is because I really want to begin monetizing my work. From what I’ve observed, many writers on medium are also looking forward to monetizing their writing.

I know that my progress so far on medium has only been a couple of days, but I’m looking forward to keeping you updated on how I’m into on the platform.

If you want to follow me, I will follow back. Make sure to let me know that you came to my medium page from my blog!

Posting on medium and testing to see if it’s a good blogging platform

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

Happy blogging!
