I got my most read/viewed/fan’d story EVER on Medium this past week. It’s beyond anything I have seen as far as engagement. And I was amazed a locked story could do so well.
The payout estimate for the first week is about half what I made in my first month in the program on a story that got about 1/20 of the views/reads/response. I’m disappointed to say the least.
I’m grateful to no end, (writers are conditioned to not be paid) but just a little confused when comparing my own stats to my own stats. It would feel better if there was more transparency about the formula.
