I Achieved a Reach of 250,000 on Medium in 10 Months

I like to celebrate my writing milestones. After just under 10 months on this platform, I’ve managed to achieve a reach of 250,000. The next stop will be 500,000. It would be so cool to achieve a reach of 1 million after that.

Reaching 1 million would take me over 3 years based on the above figures. Perhaps I will get there more quickly, but it’s a target I am aiming for. Good things will happen when I reach that milestone.

The above image shows that I’ve published 392 articles. I deleted a couple a few days ago, so the real number is higher. I might delete another 10–20 of my older articles. I have some really awful stories from when I first started writing here.

They’re not just awful, but totally pointless. Why would anyone want to read them?

The 10 worst ones earned under $3 between them. That’s very sad when I compare it to my most popular article which has earned almost $500.

But it’s all part of the learning process.

I am already working on plans to improve my article content and quality. I have also targeted some new publications that I’d like to write for. I’ve done a ton of analysis over the last few weeks and have a much better understanding of what works for me and what doesn’t.

Anyway, that’s it for now. This is just a brief post so that I can celebrate my milestone.

I hope you can also reach all the milestones you have set for yourselves. Let me know what they are in the comments section. It’s good to set targets so that we can work toward them.
