I’d read that some people made big money on Medium. I wanted that to be me. So, I signed up and published my first story on 30 October. I spend my first week or so reading as much as I could from some of the top writers. I wanted to know what got them so many views, reads and dollars. I read that some made over $10,000, which got me excited. Then I read that only the top 1% earn $1,000 a month or me. Me a top 1% writer? Don’t make me laugh. My English teacher already told me that I was average at best. That got me depressed. Then I read about a few writers that had topped $1,000 after a few months. Their writing was good, but they didn’t seem too much better than me. That got me motivated. I made to plan to find out how the top writers got to $1,000 a month. What I discovered was that they all published at least daily. So that is what I did.

It helps that I’m really enjoying writing at the moment. More than I ever have in my entire life. It never came easy to me, but after a month, the words are starting to flow more easily.

Just watch me succeed. Here are another 14 tips I started implementing.

November has ended, so what happened? This is what happened:
  • 3,749 reads
  • 10,000 claps
  • $92.88 earned
That $92.88 is only for 12–30 November. Over a whole month that would equal around $146. All I need to do is 7X this and I’ll get to $1,000. Easy? Probably not. Doable? Definitely. I’m the new kid on the blog. Soon I’ll be in the top 1%. That’s a promise. That’s my humble brag for the day.
