Thanks for your input. I’m researching another article about how the paywall works, so this was a big help.

What’s interesting is how different your experience was compared to mine and other writers I found who talked about the value of a fan.

BTW, two of the fans in your first article is not a paid subscriber (indicated by the green lines around the avatar), so their claps are not involved in compensation.

Also, congratulations on your book sales.

How do you feel about the difference between your results as an author vs. your results as a Medium writer?

I have trouble reconciling the differences in the response from Quora compared to Medium, as well as my career.
