You can call me insane but that’s true. I just made $0.02 on Vocal Media and I’m happy about it. I think I should buy myself a coffee to celebrate my success. After all, $0.02 is a big number for me.

Okay, I guess I should stop now.

I’m not being sarcastic here. There’s no doubt I’m happy with my earnings.

For popular Medium writers out there pulling out thousands of dollars per month, they can call this amount like a grain in the sand.

For me, who doesn’t earn anything from Medium, it’s a great thing to get something for my writing.

I learned about Vocal Media from the mouth of Medium writers. Some were comparing it with Medium while some were explaining how they earned XXX amount from it.

After analyzing it for days, I finally decided to give it a try and signed up for a free Vocal Media account.

I started publishing articles this week on Vocal Media and till now I have published three articles. Basically, I’m republishing articles from Medium.

In total, I’ve got 4 reads and earned $0.02. And yes, that’s a big achievement for me. For someone who hasn’t made a single penny from his writing.

Let’s have a look at Vocal Media.
