Although the writing community is growing across the Web, being a creator of written content and making money has still been like a hidden treasure among the thousands of creators who are still looking for a space to share their knowledge through writing.

For a long time writing was seen in a bureaucratic way among professionals in large editorial offices of literary, newspaper, and magazine publishing houses. …

You know what, writing is hard, being a creator is hard, but making money as a creator on Vocal, is twice as hard between being a creator and writing constantly.

If Making Money on Vocals is hard, why do I still write on vocals?

I know that many creators left Vocal disappointed because they had heard one thing and when they got there the reality was different. Perhaps the time has come when I should write about…

I have a cousin studying there, and I was disappointed to see her distressed because she couldn’t blog on Medium, couldn’t open…

I have a degree in systems analysis and development, which means that programming is like one of the members of my body, it has been part of my life from high school to college. But why don’t I write about programming? It is all the fault of my first job.

Most beginners on Medium are struggling to get their first 100 followers, qualify for the partner program, and finally, start earning their first digits. Except there’s a catch; followers shouldn’t be your key point, when you’re on a platform like Medium.
