Anybody have a story that earned $60 in a 30-day span and is willing to let me analyze it? I’m working on a piece that shows Medium writers the path to earning $1,000 per month on the platform consistently. Learning to write $60 stories is the premise. I have a couple of my own I will include, but would prefer to have several others.

I am not looking for anything way over the $60 mark. It can be a story that eventually earned more, but I’m looking specifically at the first 30 days of earnings.

Drop me a link if you have a story that meets the criteria. Please don’t be an a-hole by dropping worthless links. I’ll ask for a screenshot of the real deal and delete all other links.

Thanks for your help.
