How Unsuccessful Writers Make Money, And You Don’t.

So many love to tell new writers how to make money while they never made a dime.

It’s not rocket science. Scammers are a dime a dozen. But guess what? You are reading their bullshit while they gain followers writing about shit they have no idea what they are writing about; I’m serious.

Mediums platform is flawed, just like so many other things in life. How many articles do you read on Medium about “How to write and gain followers?” I don’t read, but I see a shit ton. Look at their followers and get back to me. But make sure they aren’t following 4–5x their following base.

There is the exception where they have a lot of followers because they are good at selling. But sooner or later the results come in and word gets out, right?

I get it. We all need our “niche.” But when does your niche become a self-absorbed, egotistical plea for approval of chasing something you have no idea what you are talking about other than manipulation?

That’s a mouthful, right?

You know who I’m talking about; they’re all over Medium.

If you are offended by this article, it’s YOU.

I get it; it’s easier to prey on the weak while you preach doing something you have no idea what you are doing other than writing about something you know nothing about, right?

To “those” I am writing to, why don’t you write and quit telling those how to write?

Why not do that?

Manipulation is your game; you are the used car salesman of Medium, is that you?

Medium has become a cesspool of people that know how to make money for everyone else but themselves, but do you blame them?

Medium should create a promotion page for these articles and hire actual moderators. Please keep the bullshit off the main page or my feed, about making money and let the actual writers shine who are trying to share a purpose or message. Stop allowing them to scam new writers out of money who are trying to figure things out when they haven’t figured it out themselves.
