How Often Do You Check Your Medium Stats?

Has it become a habit for you to check your stats every few hours? And is it really beneficial to check it so frequently? Does it motivate you or discourage you?

Since I started getting some traction on Medium and earned my first dollar for my writing, I begin to become mildly obsessed with checking my stats daily, sometimes every few hours especially after I’ve had a new post published to a publication.

The outcome?

I become discouraged when articles that I took hours to write gets minimal views, and I question my writing ability. It makes me wonder if it was the title or the topic itself is of a non high-interest category. On the other hand, it drives me to push out more content to understand what topic meets the current demand from readers, and hopefully get more revenue.

  1. Thanks for your personal marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading
    it, you can be a great author.I will make certain to bookmark your blog and will often come back sometime soon. I want to encourage you to continue your great work, have a nice evening!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any
    suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
