I have noticed my Medium views have gone up for my stories, but my earnings have been falling. I wonder if others are seeing similar trends?
I have noticed the official word on Medium earnings shows the percentage of writers earning $100 per month has been around 5%. It used to be around 8% when I first started.
The largest earners seem to still be doing well with a single story top payment that would provide a nice yearly income in many parts of the world.
I don’t expect much change.
It is the American way to funnel most of the money to a few while letting the masses settle for crumbs. It seems to be a fact of our system, so I can only do what I can do.
I would like to figure out how to make a living writing. It seems to be a lot like the music industry. A few Top 40 people and many others.
I enjoy writing and find it helps me to be creative.
I will keep writing and hope for the best.
Lots of love to everyone.
Let me know how you are experiencing the writing life this summer. Leave a comment below.
