November Recap: A High In Views & Earnings, 2x Published Stories & NewsBreak

New energy, scheduled posting, increasing my story output


Almost Christmas. Jesus Christ. That year went by quickly. As we’re unfortunately heading into another pandemic-ridden Christmas season, I’m trying to reflect on the positive here.


New energy & efficiency

November has been an efficient month for me. I tried upping my story output significantly. As a father of 5 and with my 9-to-5, this hasn’t been easy. But it was worth it.

I posted 49 stories in November. I had been publishing around 20–25 for the months prior. A significant increase that was only possible through the extensive use of shortform posts. Some of those were my best-performing stories overall on this platform.


On schedule

To get this output done, I’ve reduced a few other activities. I didn’t post on Vocal Media. I stopped using Quora and Substack. I took a break from YouTube. Luckily, this didn’t affect my YouTube earnings. On the other hand, I started writing on NewsBreak. I repurposed a few of my stories and published them there. It’s going well so far.

Furthermore, I made heavy use of Medium’s scheduling function to release stories every day. I followed a posting schedule of 2–3 long-form posts per week and a handful or more shortform stories to finish off the week.

As I said, this worked out pretty nicely for me. November has been one of my highest-earning months and the month with the most views overall. 40,000 to be exact.
