Thank you Shannon for this great example of a true hero’s tale. People think I am special, yet YOU are the one that is what we all ought to strive to be. An honest writer that covers her own stories of life and what she thinks in an awesome admirable way. Your rags to not riches, but a stable job where you set and make all decisions is why Medium is here. To make writing into an avenue to actually make money writing is something all writers might want to pursue. The community is great too, but social networks of all kind of that. All writers that want to make money here for an actual living and not just “fun money” need to read your posts and emulate what they can.
Personally I write for therapy and to shine a light on the fact that I am a chronically ill person living a workable life. We are out there surviving and living as best I can. Therefore, I write for free and free only now. The audience I seek to reach does not have $5 a month to pay to read a blogging site. 😁❤️
