Have you ever just sat back and reflected on where you were in your life just 365 days ago? Or wondered where you’d be 365 days into the future?
So much can happen in the span of 365 days. It may not seem possible but we can be in completely different places in our life.
Here’s how your life can be in a completely different place in a year:
If there’s one thing that 2020 taught any of us, it’s that jobs can be taken away pretty easily.
Businesses suffered greatly as the pandemic impacted the economy across the world…
We’ve all been there — we’ve put the time and energy into ideation of an article, writing it up, editing, and then hitting publish — hoping that the audiences of the internet will enjoy the journey of our story as much as we enjoyed writing it.
And shortly after we’ve hit publish — the one thing many writers will do is check their stats page to see if it’s been read. And this is the worst thing a writer can do. Writer’s should only check their stats sparingly, here’s why:
You have to understand that by staring at your stats…
We’ve heard the song and dance before. And sadly it appears that all good things must come to an end.
If you haven’t been notified yet, Medium sent out the following information in an email as an update about the Medium Writer Bonus Program.
“How long does Medium plan to give out monthly bonuses?
The bonus program will run through June and July. The last bonuses will be given in conjunction with July Partner Program payouts, which will happen the first week of August.
How do I make sure I’m eligible to get a bonus?
To be eligible to receive…
And how you can create one and start connecting today
Medium is built around writers, creators, and those that love to consume content. Basically, we’re one connected community.
It’s highly important that you don’t simply rely on your follower count to build up your community, especially if you want to potentially establish a passive income from writing.
The fact is, that while we have the ability to make some money on Medium, or even a monthly bonus through the platform, you’re the captain of your ship as far as building your writing career goes!
If you’re just starting, or you’re…
Every single one of us is a miracle. Truly. Think about the odds of us being here. That out of millions of cells, one egg and sperm joined to create our life. And not just that, everything had to align perfectly in order for those elements to fertilize and create a human.
It’s really truly astonishing.
Even with all of life’s ups and downs, tragedies and triumphs, it’s difficult for me to understand why we aren’t treating our life as the grand occasion that it is.
“One life. Just one. …
I’ve been writing consistently on Medium since February, and prior to that, I had spurts of productivity since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
One of the many coveted positions many writers (mostly the newbies) hope to attain is top writer status in a specific category.
Well, my day came when I received an e-mail from Medium on May 19th saying I had achieved Top Writer status for Social Media. WOW! I had never hung my hat on that status, but I won’t lie. It felt good!
Flash forward to the present moment and I was on…
What’s in a number? Many Medium writers are waking up to find their follower counts have changed. Some have even changed drastically, here’s why:
About a week or so ago I had gotten an email from Medium asking me to take a short survey. It was regarding followers on the platform. It asked a variety of questions, mainly focusing on what my expectations are for followers and what I hope it could be.
Flash forward to the present and I just read a piece written by Medium about the changes to the follower counts and experience. Basically, Medium is looking…
We’re a community and we’re always a comment away
If there’s one thing that’s become so clear to me during my writing journey on Medium, it’s that we’re a community. And like any community, we’re at our best when we’re building one another up!
There are many writers just getting their start on this platform. There are writers who are just getting the hang of it, and then there are very well seasoned writers, full of knowledge.
Naturally not everyone will want to show their cards and divulge all of their trade secrets, especially if they’ve been wildly successful. Why…
If you’re writing on Medium, especially if you’re paying for the platform, then the chances are you’re hoping for some success as a writer and content creator.
As far as I am concerned, success comes in many sizes, shapes, and hues. What some deem successful, others may not see as sustainable.
In order to be successful on Medium, you first have to decide what is your goal with Medium.
If you’re running low on creative steam, use yourself for inspiration
It happens, life gets in the way or we experience writer’s block and can’t seem to keep afloat with writing output.
I’ve had a huge bank of stories ready to go and life got in the way and the next thing I know I’ve got nothing new to publish. Don’t let yourself get frustrated with this getting in the way of your success with writing on Medium.
What’s old is new again. In fact, you can just look to yourself for inspiration and repurpose stories you’ve already published on…
