I’m a Top Writer in Books!


Look at this! Medium tells me I’m a top writer in the Books category!

I know it can’t be my views (in the hundreds) or my number of followers (under 200), so it must be some combination of the quality and quantity of posts, their reactions, and some algorithm I don’t understand.

This is awesome! I love writing, I love reading, and I especially love writing ABOUT books and writing and how to write a book or what I’m reading.

I fancy myself half an expert on this topic, as I’m a full-time paid writer and editor. I’m definitely not an expert in all of this, but I fancy myself one.

This is exciting for me! Even if it were arbitrary, I am feeling recognized for my work and dedication of regularly writing and posting and trying to maintain quality content.

I really like Medium and it’s usability, it’s easy and intuitive interface (full disclosure: I reverted back to the original homepage layout). Since starting to use Medium, I no longer post on my old personal Blogspot, I use Medium.

I hope that being a Top Writer in Books extends my reach and continues to build my momentum, and especially just keeps me motivated to write. Every day or all the time or when I can, in between clients or while I’m on the train. I write when I’m sitting at the airport, I edit while standing in line.

My career is built on writing, editing, marketing, and being very responsive and easy to work with. I love writing and hope to be a writer as my career for the rest of my life. It took me until I was 30 to try to be a paid one, and now I barely remember what life was like before.

Before, when I got dressed every single day….and left the house every day…when I stopped working after 9 hours and left…what are pants again??

Thanks, Medium and Medium readers! I hope to continue providing value, tips and tricks, and great information for writers and readers everywhere!

Feel free to follow me, and I’ll follow back and we can learn from each other!
