I am happy and content with my July earnings. Although they are still on the low side, $46.05 this time around, they are still increasing as I continue to increase my writing. I just really, really need to get into the habit of writing three per day as I planned. However, life got in the way like it always does. When I don’t feel like writing, I don’t and that needs to stop if I am ever going to be able to go full-time with writing for Medium. I need to stick to a set schedule and not let anything stop me. Nothing!
July’s earnings are still a little over double of what I made in June. In June, I earned $20. 57 and for July I made $46.05. I have a total of 63 articles on Medium so far since I got serious with it in March so I definitely need to step it up a little more. I should have had more than that by now but there have been days where I let myself slack in the writing department. I have GOT TO QUIT DOING THIS! Especially if I am ever going to be able to quit writing for private clients and start writing for Medium full-time like I really, really want to. I hate writing for private clients because I have to write what they want me to write and lately it has been about nothing but cryptocurrency. I swear that if I have to write one more article about bitcoin or ethereum, I am going to scream, cry, and puke all at once. I literally hate this topic and am not even getting paid enough by the client to pretend to like it.
I really love writing for Medium and want to keep doing it. I want to do nothing but write for Medium and Kiki Time. I haven’t been writing for Kiki Time at all. In fact, I haven’t written anything for them in months. I feel bad that I haven’t been able to because of client work. Especially since I had a fan on there comment asking me when I was going to write for the site again because she was hoping to read more of my work. That made me feel really good and it should have motivated me to write like I promised her I would but life, and client work, got in the way. I definitely need to make a new schedule and start writing at least three stories per day here on Medium if I want to get anywhere with it and at least one Kiki Time post per day until I have the time to increase the amount I am able to write for both places.
I really enjoy writing for both of these places but it gets really hard to write for them because of client work. I have had a lot of boring client work lately too. I really hope that changes soon because I can’t take much more writing about cryptocurrency.
I plan to increase my earnings every month. The more I write and the more I engage with my readers and fellow writers, the more I will get from Medium, in more ways than one. Meaning I am not in it just for the money and nothing else. I love writing here and will continue to write here for as long as I can.
