A Tutorial to Start Writing on Medium

What exactly is Medium and why should I write on it?

Medium is two things. A platform and a publisher.

What should I write?

One of the great things about Medium is that you can write about anything. Anything. And you don’t have to niche so far down that you never write outside your pet topic.

How often should I write?

You probably mean publish. You should write every day. I firmly believe that. Touch your work for even a few minutes a day, and see what happens. You’ll knock your own socks off.

How will I be paid?

To be paid for writing on Medium, you need to sign up for the Partnership Program. To do that, you’ll have to have a Stripe account you can link up to.

I’m convinced. Now what?
