Why I Deleted All My Medium Articles

I’ve been publishing regularly on Medium since early 2018. And for many years the income I generated through the partner program—plus the enhanced distribution of my work via Medium’s platform—made it a very worthwhile investment of time and energy.

But over the past 6–12 months, both partner program earnings and distribution have been dramatically worse for me with no improvement in sight.

It’s not worth it for me to publish here anymore.

I deleted all my old articles to force myself to completely shift my focus to new platforms — primarily YouTube where I’ve been publishing weekly for the past couple months.

All of my articles can be found on either my personal website (NickWignall.com) or my newsletter site (TheFriendlyMind.com) and I’ll continue publishing new articles and essays there.

If you’re interested in getting new articles and essays from me, I send a free weekly newsletter every Monday morning, which you can subscribe to here →

I appreciate everyone who’s been a reader and supporter of mine here on Medium over the past 6 years. Thank you :)
