Medium now lets anyone publish behind its paywall

Medium now lets anyone publish behind its paywall | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Lori Laurent Smith's curator insight, October 12, 3:48 AM
Blogging will always remain a critical pillar holding up a thought leader's reputation. Medium always has well-written, shareable, erudite people behind their posts (much more than Blogger or Wordpress, where the blog abandonment rate after a handful of posts is approaching Tumblr levels. They also offer truly pathetic  templates with the worst font options available. 

With the rise of crowdfunding to support writers who can be paid appropriate compensation for the hours (days?) they work to deliver thought=provoking content, it's refreshing to see Medium opening up to let everyone join their partner program.

From the article: "In September, 83 percent of those who published paywalled stories received money — the largest payment for a single author was $2,279.12, the largest payment for a single publication was $1,466.68 and the average payment was $93.65."
