Can daily writing on Medium become a profitable side hustle? It depends.

I’ve seen way too many articles of Medium writers encouraging their peers to “immediately start your own blog, find your niche, and write an article a day.” There is also a small number of writers that take the courage to share their four-, even five-digit earnings on Medium.

Over the past year and a half, since I joined Medium, I’ve read many such articles that give tips on how you can easily do the same, rather than the steps the writer had to go through.

I’m saying that, because I had tried it, and it didn’t work that well at all.

So, in this article, instead of me guiding you on how to earn more money out of your articles, I’ll tell you about my experience with what I did to earn $360 on a single story that was read by nearly seven thousand people.

It would be then up to you, the reader, to decide whether to implement my strategy and learn from my mistakes.
