Hitting A Major Medium Milestone
I have been on Medium since the end of 2016 — before there was a partner program or memberships, before there were claps (it was hearts), before it became a well-known platform, really.
I’ve written about professional and personal milestones, work stuff, business stuff, very personal stuff, mental health, and so much more.
I have been a “top writer” in multiple categories multiple times over the years.
There were times when I posted new blog posts daily, weekly, and sometimes, in times of struggle, monthly.
Overall, I have published 464 stories on my Medium account.
And last week, I was met with a happy milestone.
I hit 10,000 followers on Medium!
This is a major milestone for me.
I remember hitting 100 followers here.
I remember the first time I received a note from medium saying that only 1% of writers make over $100 per month on Medium — while receiving over $250 that month.
Medium was never about making money for me. Most months I make around $150. Nothing to sneeze at, of course, but it isn't what I rely on to make rent.
In conclusion, yay! And thank you.
Thank you so much for reading and deeming me interesting enough to follow.
