And Just Like That…I have 100 Followers
Just quit checking on it.
I remember in January starting up this Medium journey and reading all the tricks to get 100 followers so I could be monetized.
I wrote regularly and was assured by many writers that this was KEY to getting the followers. Yeah, not so much.
The KEY to getting followers is writing AND time.
I’ve been absent from Medium for a month. Before my absence, I’d had less than 100 followers. During my absence, I’ve checked on the page periodically and bit by bit, people continued to follow me. I’ve got a whopping 150 followers. Not a huge amount but enough to apply for the Medium program.
My desire to be monetized here has waned just a bit as I have focused on other types of writing. Truth be told, if I wasn’t at 100 followers, I might not even apply. But I’m curious to see where this goes if I do it my way rather than feverishly posting every day just for the sake of posting.
Stay tuned. We’ll see what happens.
