My Three Most Read Articles From December

And the flopped article I had the most fun writing.

What a rollercoaster this month has been. I faced down isolation, fought through one of the most intense depressive episodes of my life, remembered how important family is, and went on two spectacular dates. I also made six times the amount of money on Medium I’d made in November (I made $4.90 in November). Here are the four articles largely responsible for getting me there. Since writing is a passion project and not a money-centric statistics binge, I’m going to end this article with a link to the article that flopped, but that I had the most fun writing by far.

1. Three Life Lessons From a Dying Man

Coming in at number one (and also my most recent article), this late horse to the race has gotten a lot of attention. In it, I detail my time working at a retirement home and some of the beautiful life lessons I learned from the residents in my time there.

2. Three $15 Books That Taught Me Lessons I Would Pay Thousands For

Looking for something to read? These books have truly changed my life in ways that I am grateful for every day.

3. You’re Not Alone

Looking for encouragement and community these days? I know I am. I tell my coronavirus story in this article and offer a verbal hug to anyone who needs it.

And Now, The Passion Project

I had a tremendous amount of fun writing this article, and I hope you have fun reading it. In it, I detail not only my own path to success but the steps that anyone must take to succeed in the writing business in 2020/2021. Please enjoy!
