Hi, Matt. I joined Medium 3 weeks ago, and I seem to be earning $0.50-$1 per day, which isn’t much. I didn’t expect to be getting anything at all, so I guess this isn’t so bad… But I was curious as to why I’m only getting around 1 cent per view/read. I’m relieved to hear that it’s not necessarily me who’s doing something wrong, it’s the way Medium’s payouts work.

So, people actually used to make $10k per month, eh? It was really nice to read your article.
