There’s a myth that you can make BIG bucks on Medium if you publish daily about popular topics & have a unique, authentic voice that readers want to keeping coming back to engage with. This is only true for a handful of prominent writers.

I don’t know each writer’s earnings on this platform (nor do I want to) but most writers aren’t making thousands or even hundreds of dollars per month. There are MANY like you who are making less than $10 per month (including me). There’s no shame in that & it’s certainly not a reflection of the quality of your writing.

You have to write because you love the art of writing & want to share your stories. At least Medium gives you the platform to accomplish that. But I think it’s naive to expect that because you subscribe to the Medium Partner Program that you’ll make big money.
