In order for this story to make any sense — you need to look at the graphic first.

I circled how much I made in January 2024. As you can clearly see, I earned over $165 in that month, but what you can also see is that I didn’t make anywhere near that amount in any other month.

So why is it so hard to earn $100 per month on Medium?

The Freelance Writer Dream

Do you have this dream?

I would love to be able to sit down at my laptop and write 10–15 articles and check my Medium Partner Program earnings and see $500 — $1,000 go directly into my bank account at the end of every month.

Are you with me? Or is that just my dream?

And if this isn’t your dream, may I ask, “What are your Medium goals?”

  • How much money per month are you satisfied with earning?
  • How many articles should you have to publish, in order to earn that amount?

And this is the equation that Medium writers have to contemplate. How much time do I want to give to Medium — in exchange for how much compensation.
