Medium has enabled the Long Tail for writers like me!

More than 30,000 writers can’t be wrong. Medium pays out millions of dollars to writers like me each year. Previously the site paid us based on claps and as a result my startup and food posts did pretty well, but my ‘unpopular’ political posts made almost nothing. Recently Medium decided to pay based on actual reading time and as a result writers like me are making a lot more. In fact, in the first ten days after the change 129 (and counting) of my stories are now generating earnings — opposed to 10–20 before. Under the new model my best stories earn around $100 in their first month on the site. The good news is that they’ll continue to generate earnings, on a declining basis, for months after their initial publication. This means that the lifetime value could be hundreds of dollars more. For more about making money writing on Medium check out my last post:
