How does an author’s homepage design affect Member Reading Time?
Why are authors getting Views but registering ZERO minutes?
To answer these questions, we will assess the following changes. …

Happy 1-month anniversary! To be more accurate, it has been 28 days since the publication began, but it’s better to celebrate early than late.

In this newsletter, we will cover the following topics:
On Tuesday, the publication received an email from Medium with another badge of honor. It has been back-to-back weeks where the community has received acknowledgment from the platform. …
Many thanks go out to Nancy Lovering for correcting my mistake. She discovered the “Make this response a story” feature does not monetize Medium comments.
In my original story, I claimed you could monetize your comments by selecting that hidden feature before submitting. Upon further research, I confirmed Nancy’s findings and realized my error.

The “Make this response a story” feature simply allows you to write a more extended response/comment to a story. It does not qualify your comment for Medium’s Partner Program and thus earnings.
In my haste to share an insight, I forgot to cross my T’s and dot my I’s. For that, I apologize for the oversight and any confusion. …
This week was unquestionably thrilling for our publication. Several electrifying events occurred — leaving me anxious to share all with the group.
Well, the day is here, and my fingers are jittery with excitement!
For this week’s update, I will highlight the following:
Starting on Tuesday, we received an email from Medium — highlighting an achievement for our community. …
Fellowship Writers is more than a publication. It is a community, a circle, a tribe of individuals with similar ambitions for each other. We want our fellow writers to succeed in meeting their writing goals so we offer engagement and encouragement.
As your supporter, I’ve taken it upon myself to find ways to improve Fellowship Writers. How can I make the experience better for everyone, including the reader and the writer?
Moving forward, I’ve come up with two new ideas that I will share in this update. …
As a participant in the Medium’s Partner Program, individuals have the opportunity to earn more money sharing stories than working a day job. This is not a secret.
We all have the potential — right at our fingertips — literally. That’s what makes Medium so sensational.
Determined individuals can write their way into a new career, filled with various forms of writing self-employment.
However, going from zero to Tim Denning does not occur overnight. It requires dedication, a willingness to learn, an open mind, a stomach for criticism, and an unconquerable writing process.
“Gotta play to win,” said the guy buying lottery tickets. …
Today marks a week or 168 hours since our publication and community began. It began as a small, far-fetched idea for a publication and has grown into a multi-national organization — spanning multiple languages in print and online media.
Okay, that last part is an absolute exaggeration, and my intentions are not so overarching, but I digress. :)
The level of support and engagement from each reader, writer, and commenter over this last week has been exceptional. …
Becoming a Medium member has been an enriching experience. I’ve enjoyed reading numerous fictional thrillers, endearing poems, informative how-to articles, harrowing true-life accounts, and other works of creativity.
Most of my favorite stories are written by up-and-coming authors, who are working hard to make a name for themselves.
I prefer reading their content because I recognize their struggle.
It is analogous to choosing between college sports vs. professional, local boutiques vs. mega malls, corner bakers vs. franchised chains; I gravitate towards the tenacious underdogs because I consider myself a member in this category.
Which brings me to my point: How can we support each other? …

“You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, ‘Wow, you’re right! I never would’ve thought of that!’” — Dave Barry
How well do your dogs know you? My guess is they know you better than you would think. In fact, some will argue their canines know them better than their family.
Why does it seem that way?
Dogs have an exceptional ability to detect and reflect their owner’s emotions.
According to a Live Science article written by Stephanie Pappas, when reacting to sadness —

Few headlines capture more national attention than financial articles — highlighting how wealthy individuals manage to pay $0 in Federal Income Tax. More interesting of these tax anomalies is how accountants can navigate the tax code to reach the absolute valleys of tax contribution — leaving many to wonder:
How does the IRS allow this?
What tax loopholes are being exploited?
Why isn’t my guy at H&R Block helping me do the same??!
Regardless, if you agree/disagree with the ethics, this article will explore the laws that enable the tax triumph of $0 in Federal Income Tax. …
