Thanks for the reality check Chris & for being honest about how little you are earning. I’m in the same boat as you as I realize that is extremely hard to make good money on Medium unless you are churning out articles on popular topics daily or twice daily. There seems to be a trend for top writers with huge followings to brag about their earnings while sharing their stats. They say they hope to ‘inspire & motivate’ (lol!) Do you notice that no one who earns between $3–5 per month writes stories about little they are earning?! 😄

I also thank Tammy Hader for her honesty when she says that most people won’t make good money on Medium. I think a reality check is needed now & again to put things in perspective.
