That’s the big question!
That’s the answer everyone (including me) wants to know!
I know that one has to have 100 followers, not just ANY followers. Followers must be Medium members. Medium members have the word “follow” circles in green color.
I learned from reading the articles (and the articles about writing and getting followers are THE popular articles).
I read other articles and follow writers regardless if their “follow” is in green. If I enjoy what they write, I follow. These excellent writers can have dozens of followers, but if they aren’t followed by the Medium members, they receive zilch for what they write.
The likelihood of a green follower following someone who isn’t green is probably nil to none.
I recall reading that Medium allows members to follow up to 125 members per day.
And then there’s the 13-year-old that has over 5,000 followers …..and I’m still questioning how that must have happened.
I’ll keep writing, reading, and following if you are or aren’t a Medium member.
13 and 5,000 …..just wow!!
