Medium’s unexpected new change in the way it compensates members of its Partner Program rewards creators of long, padded articles, and essentially demonetizes shorter content. As nearly all of my posts are poetry, cartoons, or efficient fiction/essays, I’m faring very poorly under this new system. Since the change was implemented, my Partner Program earnings have plummeted by 90%, and hundreds of others are in the boat. If you want to help, send an email to Medium CEO Ev Williams (email@example.com) and/or to firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your displeasure with the changes. Slowly re-reading this post 100 times would also help enormously ;) So would buying me a coffee.
