What’s the Medium Gold Rush?

  • 2 min read

In the past, on Medium your stories could go viral as on steroids.

If you see screenshots from Top Writers promoting their courses better think twice.

Almost always, their screenshots with mind-blowing earnings are from 2018, 2019, or 2020.

What about 2021, 2022, or 2023?

Well, the gold rush days are over.

In an interview with Medium superstar Tim Denning, Top Writer and entrepreneur Nicoles Cole shared that the absolute Top Writers, the cream of the crop, the 1% at the top of Medium, earn up to $10,000.

In the past, some writers were able to write one story, go viral and earn tens of thousands of dollars or even got a book deal.

These gold rush days are long gone and some Top Writers are comparing 2023 with 2014–2018.

Medium is no longer the platform it once was.

Of course, it’s not easy to leave those times behind. But times change like the tides.
