Do you write a lot on Medium? I surely do. Ever since I accepted the “365 articles in 365 days” challenge, I invest a significant amount of time into writing. To be fair, I’m falling behind: I published 175 articles in 290 days, so I need to pick up the pace… But it should also be about quality, right?
Below are more than 100 articles I wrote in 2020 and 2021, divided by categories. The list will be updated monthly. Most of the articles are curated.
Banks… No one likes dealing with them. The banking system can be complicated to comprehend, and many of us get lost in it.
Not to mention, it’s hard to figure out all the rules and requirements. Applying for a loan, mortgage, or a credit card is not a walk in the park — you must jump through so many hoops! And banks want to ensure they will be getting their money back, which is why they often ask for substantial collateral.
But there is a bank that doesn’t want your house, car, or any other property as security. What does…
The internet has completely transformed the way we do business, and it certainly gifted many people the incredible opportunity to build online companies. The number of e-commerce businesses grew by 44% in 2020 — it nearly doubled! And these figures are expected to keep increasing.
Many of us dream of starting a successful business and “making it” online. For some, those aren’t just dreams but comprehensive step-by-step goals. Regardless of what planning stage you’re currently in, all the aspiring online business people share one common feeling: fear.
There are many fears to face when making life-altering decisions — and starting…
Apart from buying the house without even mentioning it to you, he sounds like a nice person and a good partner. He supported you with your dreams and goals. However, you actually talked to him BEFORE accepting a new job. He didn't return the favour when buying a new home.
Purchasing a property is a life-changing decision. Even if he saw that house listed for an amazing price at 3 am, and had to place an offer by 4 am, he could have still told you about it. I bet he's been thinking about buying a house far away FOR A WHILE before going through with the purchase. So... I think it's a red glad. Consulting a partner on something like this shouldn't be optional.
Writing — the activity so many of us enjoy. For some, it’s a hobby; for others, it can be a full-time job. Regardless of being a professional journalist or an amateur writer, creating content and producing written pieces constitutes a creative process for many of us.
There are plenty of ways one might explore the writing space and learn from others. Personally, I dedicate a large chunk of my time to reading other peoples’ work and improving my writing skills. There’s a lot to educate me on when it comes to creativity. One of the things I decided to explore…
Sex. The topic the humanity has always been obsessed about. With men thinking about sex on average 19 times a day and women — about 10, it’s no wonder sex gets a lot of attention from us.
Unfortunately, not everything we know about sex is correct. In fact, there are quite a few lies we’ve been told over the years. Many so-called facts were debunked as myths a long time ago, but despite that, not everyone is familiar with the truth. And that starts from the very basics, including virginity. …
Medium is an excellent platform for writers — both aspiring and professional. It suits bloggers, content creators, digital artists, and “regular” people who decided to give writing a shot. But how much does the website pay creators? Is it a sustainable source of income, or are we just fooling ourselves that we can earn a decent living?
You can find an endless number of articles about earning money on Medium, and a lot of them are published on this platform — naturally, we all want to know how to become successful and well-published! I want to think every author loves…
An incredibly tired Parisian
Had to make once the toughest decision:
“I won’t stop eating bread,
Otherwise I’ll go mad.
I will do a full diet revision!”.
An exhausted old baker in Paris
Closed his business, was super embarrassed.
“Screw baguettes! Time to rest!”
He lost weight — did his best,
Quickly married a skinny young heiress.
Bunch of ladies in fancy hip Strasbourg
Figured out they are royalty Habsburg!
They defied travel ban,
Landed in Amsterdam -
Their geography’s off. Brains — like iceberg.
Super cute little town of Chenonceaux
Was the home for eye-candy…
It’s the same news every day. Some author’s article went viral again and received ten thousand likes. The other author you follow wrote about selling their article to a popular magazine for $1,000. Someone else you admire shared their experience of becoming a successful copywriter and quitting the job they hated to do it full-time. It’s always someone else, but not you.
Long story short: there are many gifted and successful writers around us. Not just writers, but people from different professions. They tried something new and became great at it almost right away, while you did not. So… How…
