You’ll Fail on Medium Unless It Feels Like Easy Money

This is the right attitude to be successful here

I have no real idea what my hourly wage is for writing on Medium.

Sometimes an article that took me hours to write and revise makes me $10, other times I write and revise something in two hours and it earns well over $500. I never know which articles will take off.



Medium is hungry. Feed it!
