Is Writing On Medium Still Worth It?

  • 3 min read

Yes! I’m so happy I’ve started writing on Medium 10 months ago

On Quora, new writers constantly ask whether it’s worth writing on Medium.

My statement:

100% YES!

I don’t want you to look back a year from now and think:

Dang it! I should have started writing on Medium!

For instance, my fellow friend and co-editor of ‘The Shortform’ Burk (who gained 3K followers within 8 months on Medium) regret not having started blogging on Medium earlier.

Here's why it’s smart to write on Medium

It’s estimated that there were 31.7 million active bloggers in the USA in 2020.

Internationally, there are hundreds of thousands of blogs.

Recently, I recognized that a lot of bloggers migrate their content to Medium — Scout Dawson and Dave Logan for instance.

That’s really smart!

11 Reasons for writing on Medium…

  • it’s much better than starting your own WordPress blog, trying to get traction, and earning money
  • on an ‘aged’ website. You don’t need to start from scratch and wait until Google will filter out your content.
  • on Medium you get paid as soon as you have 100 followers and tap into an existing (paying) community.
  • it’s a powerful brand with over 100 million active users and more than 700K paying members.
  • has a high authority, ranks on the level of mega brands e.g. Facebook.
  • easily accessible for non-technical users.
  • it’s all about the journey and meeting wonderful like-minded people on this platform from around the globe
  • you can improve your writing.
  • the power of Medium’s algorithm can help your post go viral.
  • it’s fun!

Final Takeaway

Instead of scratching your head and wondering if Medium is really worth it, get started writing on Medium, grow your audience and earn decent money.

It’s possible to jump from pennies to $500+ per month.

I started my writing journey at the end of December 2020 with 147 views and $0.17.
