Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of writers complain about Medium. Top writers like Zulie Rane have suggested that the possibility of going viral with one or more articles — even with a large following — has been hit hard by the recent changes to the algorithm regarding curation, distribution, tag updates, and the removal of topics.

I can certainly see the effects of these changes. Views are down for a lot of people. So are reads and earnings.

But wait, here’s hope

Let’s not get carried away just yet. It is still very possible to go viral on this platform. Making a couple of thousand per month is not out of the realm of possibility.

The best example of this is Jenn Leach. Despite all recent changes, Jenn managed to increase her earnings by 630% in October alone. Going from $433 — which is already a fantastic amount — in September to more than $2775 in October. Moreover, 2 months prior, in August, she “only” earned $30. And before that $3.
