As a successful writer, your number of views, reads, read ratio, fans, and earnings should grow at a descent rate. This plot shows my monthly views and reads for the 16 months following my joining Medium. As you publish high quality articles prolifically and consistently, these statistics will improve over time.

Benefits of writing articles on Medium

Writing medium articles has 6 main advantages:

  1. It enables you to share your expertise, knowledge and experiences with readers across the entire globe.
  2. It enables you to improve your communication skills. This is useful because it enables you to convey information in a way that the general public can understand.
  3. Writing is an academic process that helps you to develop your mental abilities and to improve your creativity.
  4. Every article published on Medium is considered an intellectual property, so you can add a medium article to your resume.
  5. You can make money from your articles. By means of the Medium Partner Program, anyone who publishes on Medium can make their articles eligible for earning money.

2 Secrets for Successful Medium Writers

The secrets of successful writing could be gleaned from this quote from the Bible: The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” 2 Corinthians 9: 6, ESV Bible.

Lesson 1: Write Prolifically

Just as in farming, “whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”

Lesson 2: Write High Quality Articles

Remember our quote: “whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” You can only reap bountifully as a farmer if you sow high-quality seeds.
