Some time ago I noticed there was money to be made on Medium. I joined the Medium Partner Program and moved some of my posts behind the metered paywall. Time to become a millionaire.
I quickly wrote a new blogpost and shared it on Reddit. This received some backlash as someone commented "Too bad you care about money more than sharing it. ¯\(ツ)/¯". That hurt, but it was also kinda true.
This sparked a thought in my head. I can just create my own blog. Maybe add some ads. And still become a millionaire. I can just blog about building a blog. Easy does it.
