Why Are My Earnings Per Read on New Stories So Low?

Is it just me, or is everyone experiencing lower earnings?

Let me be upfront before I start this article.

I’m like many other people on here who only publish because I love writing. I never check my stats, and I’m not here to make money.

All I care about is making a positive impact on the world.

Okay, enough of that BS.

Is it just me, or are earnings down on Medium again for the 50th time? Every new story I publish is lucky to make more than a few dollars.

I’m still getting plenty of reads each day, which means it has nothing to do with summer. My older articles continue to earn a little, but the earnings per read are really bad most of the time.

Yes, I know the earnings per read isn’t the best of stats but it can still give us a general idea of the value of an article.

You can check out the screenshot below to get a better idea of what I’m talking about. I didn’t include any stories in the last two days because I know the earnings are delayed for the most recent articles.
