Medium Blogging Guide Author Earnings Survey

Every month we conduct a survey of Medium author earnings, to see how writers following our publication are doing. Below are the results from the February earnings survey. We had 144 responses! Thank you to everyone who participated!

Overall, the earnings chart above suggests that readers of Blogging Guide are more successful than the general writing population.

In the general Medium writer population, typically 7%-9% of all active writers earn more than $100 in any given month. Among the Blogging Guide respondents, 50.7% earned over $100 per month!

It will be interesting to see if and how this trend shifts in the coming months since the new payment system based on reading time.
