Stats BEFORE I Started Writing More Frequently

I started writing on Medium back in December 2016. I was fairly sporadic with my writing, some months writing a lot, others not writing at all. I did quite well with a few posts that were earning me regular pocket money but the rest didn't really do much at all.

2020 Monthly Earnings (authors own image)

If you write more, you will earn more, it’s as simple as that.

From August 2020 I started writing more frequently, every weekday where possible, to see if this advice had any merit. Let’s take a look at what happened.

Stats AFTER I Started Writing More Frequently

In August I published 6 articles. That was more than I had posted in the previous 7 months combined, surely that had to increase my views and earnings right?

Why Does Writing More Earn You More?

You may think the answer to this is obvious. Every post earns money so the more you write the more posts you have that earn you money and therefore you will earn more.
