Love this! I joined towards the end of 2018 but had many long breaks without publishing on Medium at all. In January I have written at least one piece per day and I came very close to a full-time income that I’d be happy with for now. I talked to a few people about it and it really annoyed me how anyone thinks “Oh, that’s way too easy, I can do that too.”
My huge numbers of January were mainly due to two articles that got quite viral and of course it wouldn’t be possible if January had been my very first month here. I am beyond grateful for Medium. I find it so valuable how it’s still so easy to get your work out there and reach people. And I think it’s just fair that the first ones here have an advantage over all the others, it’s the same on any other platform.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this! :)
