Medium says it offers a chance to get published behind their paywall. Doing so then gains you some portion of what people pay to be able to get past the paywall.
I tried this. Two essays. Not saying that either are pure and golden but each is a couple of thousand words looking askance at policies being advanced in the Democratic primaries.
No, not saying that the political line is the reason for the following.
After a couple of weeks neither has been reviewed by Medium for inclusion behind that paywall. One actually tells me their editorial staff is so overwhelmed that they won’t even bother. The other says they’ve not got to it yet – that second being the older one by a couple of days.

So, the conclusion has to be that Medium, as a place to write and get paid, simply doesn’t work.
Ah well, shrug.
