Medium used to be much easier to earn, but a few algorithms changed and now it’s a ghost town. There are a lot of people complaining about the same things you are, and I have to agree. A lot of the people making money are doing it will listicles and clickbait. Many are rewriting the same old self-help crap and getting featured.
There are some problems with Medium, but I urge you to keep writing because you never know when things will change.
Thanks for reading!
