Medium.com

Some of you may have noticed that there are posts on this blog that were previously published on my Medium.com page, which can be found here.   In many instances, I re-post some of my Medium articles on this blog, as not everyone can read the article on Medium without being a member.


I have been writing this blog for quite a long time and monetized it with Adsense, but I have earned very little money; not enough to pay for the customized web address. I also wrote for Hubpages and did not earn enough money for their $50 payout threshold. After exploring Medium I decided to try writing and publishing with them in hopes of making some pocket change.  I have been writing on Medium for about a year and consistently earned money each month.

So what is Medium? Medium.com is an online publishing site where both professional and amateur writers can publish their work.  It is also a place where people can go to read articles on a wide variety of subjects, ranging from poetry to fiction.

Medium is free to join and publish your work, but there are some limitations.  With the free membership, you are limited to reading only 3 articles a month, but you can publish as many articles as you wish.  However, with the free membership, you will not be able to earn any money for your articles. For $5 a month or $50 a year you may become a Medium Partner Program member.  With the MPP membership, you can read as many articles as you wish and you can earn money from the articles you publish.  Many members make well over a hundred dollars a month, while a few more professional writers make thousands!  I have managed to make well over the $5 per month membership fee, with not a great deal of work invested.  The more you publish and interact with other writers and articles the more money you earn. 

I have noticed that many people who are not Medium Partner Program members read my articles, which is great for me, but it could be better.  That's why I am writing this post. I earn money every time an MPP member reads my articles and claps or comments. If you enjoy reading my articles and you want to read more, from me, or the hundreds of other fellow writers, or if you want to write and get paid for it, why not join Medium and become a member of the Medium Partner Program. 

Please check out Medium.com  to learn more about how you can discover a world of reading and explore how you too can make some money.  I think you will enjoy Medium and you will be helping me out, as wells as many other writers.  Thanks for reading and I hope I see you on Medium.
