Happy New Years Everyone!

This year has been so great for us. It has brought a lot of happiness and some new lessons. I have grown so much in this year and more than I have in the previous year. It’s amazing to look back at how my life was before, and to compare it to where it is now. I’m so thankful for everything that I have. Every day of my life, I look at my beautiful little family that I’ve made and I feel the greatest happiness in my heart. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about how lucky I am to be with them.

The hardships this year has brought me to a new place in my life. With hardships, you will also experience new lessons. I learned that I can grown on my own. It’s okay to move away from those who are not good for you and to walk on your own instead. I wish I had done this sooner. I honestly don’t know why I was so hesitant to do this before, but it’s better late than never.

A new journey that I embarked on this year was growing my writing on medium. If you want to read my new article on medium, you can click here. I’m so surprised and extremely grateful that I have been able to grow so much on medium in such a short amount of time. Blogging has been my passion for so long. Medium feels like an extension to my writing. And I’m more happy than ever to be able to write on both platforms now.

I’ve written a lot about my journey on medium so far on here. And I’m definitely going to continue writing about my medium journey. For us bloggers, there are a lot more opportunities for us. I want to be able to share my experiences with others if they are also looking to expand their writing too. Therefore, you can read more about my thoughts on medium on this blog or you can click here to access all of my medium articles.

If you are not familiar with medium, it is a writing platform that allows writers of all levels to publish articles and to be able to make money from their writing. It doesn’t cost anything to join the program. I have found the program to be very rewarding. The money that I have earned from medium is 4-5 times as much as how much I make from word ads on WordPress.

If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have about medium.

I don’t want to keep you too long on this blog post. It’s currently two hours away from the new year and I’m going to go spend it with my family. Happy new year and I hope that you have all the blessings this upcoming year!

I’ll see you in the new year!

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!

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!

The realities of being a blogger

Being a blogger is great. We can write anywhere that we want and work whenever we want. I have written blog posts when I was in the gym or when I was in line at the coffee shop. There have been days that I haven’t posted on here. And there have been days when i’ve posted blogs every day. Each day is different and these are just the realities of being a blogger.

I’ve seen online about how many people are making money from blogging just from a couple of weeks starting their blog. It definitely is possible, but the reality is many bloggers spend years blogging before they begin making money from it.

I’ve learned that blogging is sometimes a path that you have to walk through by yourself. I remember when I started blogging with my friend. She was the one that convinced me to start blogging. I was hesitant, but I created my blog that day. It was exciting. I couldn’t wait to begin this journey with my friend. She posted about five blog posts and never posted again. I wish she was still blogging with me to this day. And I really wanted a friend to go through this journey with me. However, this isn’t the reality of what happened. Many bloggers quit in their first year of blogging. If you are just beginning your journey, make sure that you have an ample amount of patience. You aren’t going to see results immediately. It took me three years to gain the number of followers that I have now. I am so grateful for my followers, but the results weren’t instant. I had to write many blog posts and engage in the community for things to happen. To this day, I have written 277+ blog posts. I probably have more on my other blogs. Although blogging can be discouraging at times, I still enjoy doing it. And I will never stop blogging.

Another reality of blogging is that you are going to spend much of your time writing. I have spend many hours writing on my phone and computer. Writing has become second nature for me. If you feel like writing is daunting, I think that the more you write, the easier it will be.

On another note, I am also writing on medium.com. I am enjoying blogging on the platform also. If you are also writing on medium, please follow me at @liachenhwang. I will make sure to follow you back! Let’s support each other and help each other in our blogging journey.
