Do I Need Too Long To Write and Create Online?

  • 2 min read


I love all those posts on Medium claiming they only need 4 hours per day for their full-time creator business.

I work around 2–3 hours per day for my part-time business.

Am I doing anything wrong?

In my opinion, they are either super awesome, maybe the most productive and focused creators or they are lying or aren’t telling us about the “hidden costs” of content creation.

When I write a post in English, which isn’t my native language, it takes 30 minutes to 2 hours or even more for an in-depth marketing piece.

Medium = 30min — 2 hours or more

Newsletter = 2 hours

YouTube = 3 hours to 9 hours

What do you think? Do I need too long?

Here’s my latest YouTube video in which I analyzed the demographics of Medium:
