Medium is a blogging platform that was created in 2012 by Blogger and the co-founders of Twitter, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams. The site was designed as a publishing platform to help people create stunning content and get their stories out.

Conclusion:

This is a reputable site to write for as a freelance writer. The site is legitimate, but it doesn’t actually pay you directly. The site uses Google Adsense to earn money on your blog posts. You’ll need your own Google Adsense accounts if you plan on earning money from the articles you’ve written on the site. Furthermore, the site allows you to use your own affiliate programs to earn from your articles. The site doesn’t charge you money for your affiliate links; therefore the money you’ve earned is yours.

My Thoughts About the Site:

  1. Revenue sharing is an excellent idea for the site owner. This way they aren’t liable to pay people to write on their site. Unfortunately, if people don’t have their own Google Adsense account, they can’t earn from this type of site.
  2. You’re basically writing for another website, in order to capitalize on this site and earn, you’ll need over 100 articles in your account.
  3. If you need to continue to write for this type of program, all you’re doing is helping the site earn money from your work. The site no longer pays you, and this type of a system means you are paying the site now.
  4. I feel if you can build up your account on a site like this, it wouldn’t be difficult to start your own blog or website. You’ll have a better chance of earning money off your own blog.
  5. These types of sites are very competitive and it takes a lot of work to build up your account.
  6. The site only accepts top quality articles that are easy to promote. This way the site is guaranteed to earn money from your articles.
  7. If you can write 10 articles a day for this site, it would be easy to write the same articles for your own site.
