Engagement, Spread, and Tweaking
What I learned from getting 7 pieces curated in 5 days without writing any new content.
Who I Am
My name is Aigner, pronounced like Kanye without the K or onyay. I’m a professional freelance writer and editor. I’ve had a Medium for a while now, but only just became a follower at the end of November.
I garner about 100–120 new followers a week. I publish a minimum of one story a day of quality and value. I follow and interact with other writers on this platform, but most importantly, I have a writing practice that kicks ass. I publish a ton outside of this platform with places like Tor Nightfire, Oly Arts, Discover Pods, and more. I currently make about $1–2 a day on here and have head over 30+ pieces published on my page and other Medium publications.
In my first week or so I got about 200 followers, published 10–20 stories, and made about 4 bucks.
I don’t have a capture of those stats and haven’t figured out if you can view weekly past stats, but below are my stats from this past week.
These are my views since I began my membership and started publishing on here frequently.
So, I’m not going into this totally from scratch, but I’m also not one of those people who shot right out of the gate with thousands of views or followers. I’m slightly above average at best, but I know how to move out of average into the top percent.
Experimentation, persistence, and outreach.
