My writing ability increased exponentially.

My writing ability increased exponentially.

The more you write the better you get. But I didn’t just write to meet some number. I practiced consciously . That means :

  • studying the platform,
  • looking at viral articles and trying to replicate them, and
  • learning new techniques from my favorite writers.

Here’s how you can improve your writing drastically:

Here’s how you can improve your writing drastically:

  1. Aim for clarity — Clear and concise writing wins the game. Use short sentences.
  2. Always weave in your personal story — People are much more likely to forget about your article if you don’t have some sort of personal story that can resonate with them. Do this at the beginning of the post because there are many articles on this same subject. Always differentiate yourself.
  3. Write about stuff you’re interested in — Your writing gets 10x better if you write about your favourite subject. Find your subjects and write something you can be proud of no matter how many views it gets.

I get curated loads more than I used to.

I get curated loads more than I used to.

Ever since month ten, curation rate has more than quadrupled. How?


Even during those months where there's little to no curation, keep churning out articles.

That added compound interest put in over those nine months.

But alas, curation doesn’t matter.

But alas, curation doesn’t matter.

I understand that it can be crucial for increasing your earnings. But I sing a different tune. My biggest article that made me over seven hundred bucks and counting was not curated.

Here’s some actionable advice — don’t look at your curation rate!

Remember why you write and leave the curation up to the curators.

I got into the top 1,000 writers on the platform

I got into the top 1,000 writers on the platform

Not only did I get in the hundred dollars club again, I almost reached the four-figures club. Medium decided to grace the top 1,000 writers who received the most engagement in April a five-hundred-dollar bonus for their hard work. I was one of them.

I’m not bullshitting you when I say I write and publish new articles every single day. Heck, sometimes I publish twice a day. Saying I wrote 365 articles in 365 days is an understatement.

You can’t make any excuses not to publish. If you want to succeed on this platform, you need to treat writing like a job instead of a hobby. Consistency is key.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
