Will definitely consider writing an article too. Lesson here for me is don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Newsbreak is great for its monetary incentives but those don’t last anyway. There are 2 rules I broke as a freelance writer: 1) I stopped writing consistently 2) I focused on one platform to the point that I ignored the rest. It is okay to focus on one but I should have spent a little time on the others too. In this age of instability, i cannot afford not to have several sources of work/income as a writer. If one falls, the other 2 can keep you going at least for a while. Luckily I am not in a situation where I desperately need the money to survive but I would love to make a living as a writer. So far I have only made pocket money (not counting Newsbreak) but if I had been more consistent on Medium, I just may have reached the $1000 mark. I was getting up there when I quit to focus on NB.
