Medium is undergoing a lot of changes. In the past few months, we have watched several big as well as small publications closing their doors.

You’ve decided to write on Medium. That’s awesome. Congratulations!
Now you need to make a start. In order to join the Medium Partner Program and get paid for your engaging stories you first need 100 followers.
