I hate negativity. That’s negative, I know.
But today was one of these days: I saw some people on Facebook discussing how awful Medium is and that their stats are declining and they are not achieving their desired results.
So, be aware: This is a getting-rid-of-my-anger-by-writing type of post.
I honestly don’t understand why some writers can’t deal with the changes that are happening on Medium.
Medium was not built for you.
It’s a business, a platform that serves a higher purpose than just publishing your work. And if Medium would be gone tomorrow, you couldn’t do anything about it.
Medium doesn’t bother about you as a person.
BUT it offers you more than any other writing or publishing platform.
Last month, I had more than 350,000 views here on Medium.
Now, I am into this whole world of online business, blogging, and generating traffic for more than two years, and to be honest, I haven’t found any other way to reach that many people so quickly.
If you do, please let me know.
These crazy numbers eventually lead to a paycheck of more than $7,700 through Medium.
However, Medium doesn’t owe me anything.
When you wake up tomorrow, Medium could be gone.
