With hard work and good writing, your content can reach more fans and readers
Medium is one of the best platforms for writers these days. There are many great things about using Medium to display your written work and make money on the side.
Here are some of my favorite ideas and suggestions. If you have tips or ways that work for you, please share them in the comments. Every day is a new chance for all of us to get better as a writer.
You probably know by now that your job as a writer is to produce content that people want to read. After that, hopefully those readers will share your work with others around the world.
What makes a story great?
- A fresh take or perspective on any topic
- Something personal that affected you or taught you something
- Topical or recent news
- Good investigative work
- A great interview with interesting quotes or dialogue
- Something completely new
Good writing is hard work. The better the story or article, the more likely it is that a lot of effort or planning went into the creation and development of that content.
In order to find more readers and earn more money, you are going to need to prepare yourself for a lot of effort and discipline to get your content into the best final draft that is possible.
The Best Writing
If you want to see great written content, check out well-known news organizations. For example, there is a lot of exceptionally wonderful content on the pages and websites of The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. That is true.
Of course, great writers go to fabulous publications and that is how they maintain high editorial standards, by retaining talent and producing memorable content that readers pay for.
