Hi, I’m the editor of the Personal Growth publication. PG is an independent publication that exists to help us all keep learning and growing.
Writers are paid for the work they do, by Medium. Independent publication owners and editors, such as myself, don’t receive any compensation from Medium (except for the articles I write myself). Nor do writers share their earnings with me (which I don’t expect).
I do benefit from the success of other writers in the publication, because their articles help attract a larger audience for my articles. I also benefit from some affiliate marketing articles.
All told, it’s not a lot of money. If you can, please consider making a donation to help support the work I do in:
- Finding great writers for the publication, and
- The daily job of reviewing article submissions from various writers for you to read
Also, as a writer myself, I recently saw my income from the Medium partnership program get cut in half, because of changes to how articles are valued. Since my articles tend to be short they aren’t considered as valuable under the new rules (I still appreciate the program though).
If any of this resonates with you, and you can afford to do so, I’d appreciate your support:
