I started in December. Made $1.45 in Dec and then $74 in Jan. Feb is not going well till now. One reason is that publications either do not respond quickly. Even if they have to reject, it would be great if they rejected fast and let us know the reason.
Also a note to the readers is that publications will publish what sells. Let Medium not become a blogging version of TikTok. It is good to want to be rich and successful, hence the demand for a certain genre, but then thoughtful blogs too should have their audience. A list of publications and their genre would help writers post their blogs in the right publication.
And thanks a lot for writing this blog and encouraging people. Much appreciated.
